A personal story of spiritual search and discovery that brings the reader to a surprising conclusion.

With In the Glory of the Father: The Bahá'í Faith and Christianity, author Brian Lepard begins by drawing on his childhood religious experiences and his study of the Bible and holy books from other world religious traditions. He recounts his own personal spiritual journey and discovery of the Bahá'í Faith. He then describes in some detail the lives of the central figures of the Bahá'í Faith: the Báb, Who heralded the coming of Bahá'u'lláh, the Founder of the Bahá'í Faith; the life and teachings of Bahá'u'lláh and of 'Abdul-Bahá, the son and successor of Bahá'u'lláh; and more. Other chapters explore the station of Jesus Christ, biblical interpretation, and the nature of God. Lepard also discusses whether it is possible to build the Kingdom of God on earth.

This book is aimed at Christian readers who have heard of the Bahá'í Faith and are interested in learning more about the relationship between the teachings of Christianity and the teachings of the Bahá'í Faith.

Brian Lepard is a professor of law at the University of Nebraska and a specialist in international human rights law. A graduate of Princeton University and Yale Law School, he is the author of Hope for a Global Ethic (Baha'i Publishing, 2005). He also served at the United Nations Office of the Bahá'í International Community. He and his family live in Lincoln, Nebraska.
