This is the story of the Bab, a young Siyyid Who lived in Persia in the nineteenth century. The beauty and purity of His short life shine out amid the dark corruption of the times. When He said that He was the Promised One Who had come to renew religion and prepare the way for One greater than Himself Whose teachings would bring peace to the world, His message spread like wildfire across the land, awakening the hearts of people everywhere.
The appearance of the Bab was like the sun rising above the horizon at dawn, heralding the beginning of a new day in the history of mankind. It was a time of great excitement, heroic deeds, and a new outpouring of love into the world. This beautifully illustrated history will appeal to readers of all ages.
