"I am, I am, I am the Promised One! I am the One whose name you have for a thousand years invoked, at whose mention you have risen, whose advent you have longed to witness, and the hour of whose Revelation you have prayed to God to hasten." -The Báb

Millennial fervor gripped many people around the world in the early nineteenth century. While Christians anticipated the return of Jesus Christ, a wave of expectation swept through Islam that the "Lord of the Age" would soon appear. In Persia, this reached a dramatic climax on May 23, 1844, when a twenty-five-year-old merchant from Shiraz named Siyyid 'Alí-Muhammad, later title "The Báb," announced that He was the bearer of a divine Revelation destined to transform the spiritual life of the human race. Furthermore, He claimed that He was but the Herald of another Messenger, who would soon bring a far greater Revelation that would usher in an age of universal peace. Against a backdrop of wide-scale moral decay in Persian society, this declaration aroused hope and excitement among all classes. The Báb quickly attracted tens of thousands of followers, including influential members of the clergy--and the brutal hand of a fearful government bent on destroying this movement that threatened to rock the established order.

Release the Sun
Release the Sun was the first Baha'i book I'd read, cover-to-cover in my very early years as a declared believer (I'm second generation Baha'i). I started reading it in the early evening, I couldn't put it down, stayed up all night, reading.  At dawntime I layed the book aside with a renewed soul, insight & inspiration abounding. William Sears was a great story teller and in this book, he was telling the true story of the Blessed Ba'b. This book gives tremendous insight into the times & trials of the world into which God's latest Messengers emerged & were made manifest. Highly recommend this reading.
