Added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1978, the Baha'i House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois is a stunning building with an inspiring and storied history. Drawing upon decades of research, the author brings to life in rich and vivid detail, not only the story of how the Temple came to be built, but the story of the birth of a religious community and the many trials and victories it would experience in its establishment. Now in its second edition, The Dawning Place has been updated to cover the years that have elapsed since the Temple’s dedication with stunning, never-before-published photographs of the building and its surrounding environs.

The Dawning Place
I read the first edition of this remarkable author many years ago, and we recently purchased this revised edition, mostly for the new photographs included. But I'm very glad we did purchase it, and I'm even happier that I decided to read it again, for it has been edited and has additional information as well. Bruce Whitmore has written the history of this majestic Mashriqu'l-Adhkar in such a readable way that words fail me when I try to express how moved I was in reading it, especially this second time around. Love, sacrifice, danger, seemingly insurmountable problems, leadership, inspiration, innovation, and much more having to do with the conception to completion of this beautiful House of Worship are written about with perfection in this marvelous book. Don't think of it as simply a history book, or a nice coffee table book; think of it as a tool for inspiration and a heart-warming reminder of the sacrifices made to bring this marvelous gift to mankind, this Silent Teacher, this Mother Temple of the West, to fruition.
