The Coming of the Glory and its succeeding two volumes comprise a survey of a vast ancient world: the development of religion as we know it today. There are numerous references in the Hebrew Bible (or the Old Testament) that seem to allude to and, though thinly veiled, even announce the coming of the Báb, Bahá’u’lláh, and the Bahá'í Era.


Beginning with the historical context from which emerged the revelations of Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses, extensive archeological excavations of Middle Eastern sites give indications of religious belief systems. Looking at three archeological sites in particular gives evidence for animism, ancestor veneration, animal and human sacrifice, and polytheism. Then the Prophet Adam appeared, followed by many other prophets. An exploration of what is known of the lives, words, and teachings of these prophets shows the development of a new society and way of thinking. Revealed in those ancient pages is a God who declares that the end is known from the beginning, and that He has made it known to His servants, the prophets. The purpose of those prophets was to address the problems of their time–idolatry and disobedience to the Mosaic Dispensation–and to call the people to obedience to the Divine Covenant. They also foretold a time of Glory in, what was to them, the distant future—an age of global peace and the unity of humankind.
