Brings to life in rich detail the compelling story of the Prophet and Founder of the Bahá'í Faith. An inspiring and dramatically paced introduction to the Prophet and Founder of the Bahá'í Faith, The Story of Bahá'u'lláh presents in a clear narrative style the life of the Prophet from His birth into a wealthy and noble family, through His transforming spiritual experience while incarcerated in the infamous Black Pit of Tehran, and over the decades of harsh and increasingly remote exile that followed. Woven into the story are Bahá'u'lláh's principal teachings and references to historical events and persons that place the development of the new religion in a global context. This book chronologically follows the story told in Release the Sun (Bahá'í Publishing, 2003) and includes the life of the Bab and the dramatic events of the Dawnbreaker era.

This book is amazing.
when I started this book I just could not put it down, it contains details about life of Bahaullah that I did not know before. Also it helped me to understand Bahaullah not only as the messenger of God but also him as a human, as someone who sacrificed so much, not only his tests and sufferings but the suffering of his immediate family and  the sacrifices that his family endured. This book is wonderful.

Review by: William Collins, Library of Congress - June 1, 2005
Who was Bahá’u’lláh (1817-92)? Why was he persecuted, tortured, imprisoned, and exiled by the political and religious authorities of his time? These volumes attempt to make the life of this self-proclaimed divinity known to a wider audience. Bahá’u’lláh--an Arabic title meaning "Glory of God"--was the prophet-founder of the Bahá’í faith, whose worldwide adherents number roughly six million. Bahá'ís rank him with all the other great Messengers of God, believing him to be Christ incarnate and the unifier and redeemer of humankind. Poet and writer Cederquist and author, publisher, and lecturer Matthews (He Cometh in Clouds: A Bahá’í View of Christ's Return ), both Bahá’ís themselves, bring this unfamiliar prophet back to life in their respective works. Cederquist describes Bahá’u’lláh's life straightforwardly but with drama and a talent for evoking the ambience of the 19th-century Persian and Ottoman milieus. Meant for a general reading audience, this book includes a minimum of footnotes and endnotes. The five appendixes cover chronology, Bahá’u’lláh's family, the branches of Islam, and millennial Christians. A glossary clarifies names and terms. Matthews offers a somewhat more sophisticated examination of Bahá’u’lláh's claims to be God's mouthpiece, framing his argument in terms of how scientific methods of investigation might be applied to them (reconciliation of science and religion is a Bahá’í principle). He uses this approach in discussing Bahá’u’lláh's predictions, knowledge, character, method of revelation, and influence to make a case for Bahá’u’lláh's claims. Parts of the book require thorough concentration, particularly where Matthews delves into physics and paleontology. The main drawbacks to these volumes are the absence of a glossary in Matthews's case and the use of capitalized pronouns for central Bahá’í figures (a Bahá’í mark of reverence but disconcerting to the uninitiated) and the occasional use jargon (e.g., "the Cause") in referring to the Bahá’í faith. As most libraries seriously lack general resources on the Bahá’í founder, both books are highly recommended for public libraries; the dramatic tone and readability of Cederquist's work may appeal to YA audiences.
