Essence of the Covenant

Author: Shahin Vafai

Pages: 296
Availability: In stock
Price: $9.00


The Universal House of Justice has explained that "[t]he essence of the Covenant is the continuation of divine guidance after the Ascension of the Prophet through the presence in this world of an institution to which all the friends turn and which can indisputably state what is the Will of God. After ‘Abdu'l-Baha the Guardianship and the Universal House of Justice are such institutions."

The Essence of the Covenant explores the features, history, and implications of this basic aspect of the Covenant—the continuity of divine guidance through the Faith's authorized institutions. It seeks to explore such questions as: What is the purpose of the Covenant? How, and for what purposes, did Baha'u'llah appoint ‘Abdu'l-Baha as the Center of the Covenant? What is the scriptural foundation for the institutions of the Guardianship and the Universal House of Justice? What are the objectives and powers of these twin successors of Baha'u'llah and ‘Abdu'l-Baha? Why did Shoghi Effendi not appoint a successor Guardian? How can the Universal House of Justice function in the absence of a living Guardian? What is the basis for the infallibility of the Universal House of Justice? How does the Covenant protect the Baha'i Faith? And what is the individual's relationship to the Covenant?

Similar in format to its predecessor volumes – The Path Toward Spirituality and Raising the Call – this book is ideal for personal or group study, containing detailed explanations, quotations for reflection, illustrations, and study questions.
