Ebook progress

 The ebook I mentioned in my last post has now been sent for review - which may take a while.

Meanwhile I am working on the next part of the history - the dispensation of Baha'u'llah, 1850 to 1892. This ebook is even more challenging as the amount of detail available is greater making it difficult to decide what to include and how to summarise. 

If my health permits me to work on the third part that will also be a big challenge. How to summarise the amazing travels of Abdu'l-Baha? I depend upon God's help to make progress...

Recent work


A quick update. I have completed a draft of a short history of the Faith for the period up to 1850, the dispensation of the Bab. It has grown bigger than expected - some 10,000 words. I made much use of Balyusi's great book on the Bab to guide me as to what to include - without quoting from it. 

I include in this post a version of the map I include in the book. I tried to ensure the date of various events was clear so that the stories of those involved can be related to each other.

Another ebook which relates the Bahá’í Faith to Christianity


 This ebook, "Jesus - in the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh", reviews what Bahá’u’lláh has written about Jesus. Both Bahá’ís and Christians may get new insights from the forty or so quotations. He is very clear about the Divine nature of Jesus.

It is hoped that those investigating the Faith will find it useful. Further reading suggestions are provided for those interested, along with other information about the Faith.

Please ebooks will be free to download during the Ridvan period (from April 21 to early May).

This blog

 A glance or two at this blog shows that the writer's interests have changed in recent years. The focus is now mostly on the writing and publishing I find myself doing despite not being a great writer.

Currently I am having another book reviewed. This one looks at what the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh say about Jesus. 

I have also started another book - a short history of the Faith. This is very presumtious of me though it does seem to fill a space. This will keep me busy for the rest of the year probably. God willing I will have the energy and capacity to finish it. I hope to add to it colour pictures, a map, a timeline, links and so on - easier with an ebook than a printed book.

Ivan Fraser's Memoirs updated


 A selection from unpublished parts of the memoir have been added. These are from the period 1965-1978. If you have the ebook just download it again.

The series of ebooks will be freely downloadable late in February.

The photo on the right is a rather blurry images of Ivan Fraser cut from a larger photo.

Ooops! Just found another photo which should be included. Next update probably. I have posted it below. It is from August 1965 and shows the community with Hand of the Cause Khazeh.
