Excerpt

ion is but a revelation of Thine Own Self, with each of Whom we have truly appeared and we bow down in adoration before Thee. Thou hast been, O my Best Beloved, and shalt ever be my witness throughout bygone times and in the days to come. Verily, Thou art the All-Powerful, the Ever-Faithful, the Omnipotent.

I have testified to Thy oneness through Thine Own Self before the dwellers of the heavens and the earth, bearing witness that, verily, Thou art the All-Glorious, the Best Beloved. I have attained the recognition of Thee through Thine Own Self before the dwellers of the heavens and the earth, bearing witness that Thou art in truth the Almighty, the All-Praised. I have glorified Thy Name through Thine Own Self before the dwellers of the heavens and the earth, bearing witness that Thou art indeed the Lord of power, He Who is the Most Manifest. I have exalted Thy holiness through Thine Own Self before the dwellers of the heavens and the earth, bearing witness that in truth Thou art the Most Sanctified,

This book not only gives the reader an insight into the conditions of the 1800s in Persia, but also into the overwhelming devotion of the author, The Bab (English translation - The Gate) to the glorification of God and to the announcement that a new messenger from God was about to be revealed.

This man was the forerunner of Baha'u'llah, the prophet founder of the Baha'i Faith. Because He dared to suggest that another messenger from God was forthcoming, He was shot and killed by the Persian military. If you are a student of religion, this is a "must read" book.
