Briefly but clearly, and with all possible emphasis, facts are given in this little book to prove that the Kingdom of God, as foretold in the Bible with a thousand details, has at last come with those details all fulfilled.

In all the revealed world religions the coming of the kingdom is identified with the appearance of the Supreme World Redeemer, the Lord of Hosts, the returned Christ, the Qá’im, the new Buddha. “One fold and one shepherd” is to replace the many conflicting and separated groups of men.

This outstanding pledge, originally given thousands of years ago, has never been taken up by any of the Great Prophets until the nineteenth century, when Bahá’u’lláh, Found of the Bahá’í Faith, announced to the rulers and religious leaders of the world that He was this Redeemer and the Bearer of God’s message to modern man. He proclaimed that He spoke with the Voice of God Himself, that He was the Lord of Hosts, Christ come in the glory of the Father, and that this was indeed the Last Day, the Day of Judgment. The Cause of Bahá’u’lláh and His martyred Forerunner, the Báb, had for twenty years suffered persecution of every form; yet without investigation the kings and ecclesiastical rulers whom Her addressed ignored His message. He died in 1892 in the Holy Land, an exile and captive of the Turks. Yet today a world-wide community exists bearing His name and following His teachings.

Twentieth century thought and aspiration are deeply committed to the social and humanitarian principles which Bahá’u’lláh announced, though His spiritual message is, as yet, ignored and certainly no relationship is conceived between the idea of world order and the Kingdom of God.

This book is directed especially to the Christians whose age-long prayer, given by Christ Himself, is “Thy kingdom come”. Unfortunately the Christian Churches are in disagreement as to what this means and they are, therefore, powerless to meet the crisis of our times.

The message of Bahá’u’lláh opens to Christians the one door leading to the certain prospect of fulfillment of all that is best in their great tradition, the fairest hope of service and of redemption in the future. 1

My sister and brother-in-law recently relocated and chose to donate several books in their library rather than move them. Many of these volumes are not well-known, but due to the topics they cover and the manner in which their authors explore them, they warrant a nod of recognition before being sent on their way. Accordingly, most quotes referenced in the “Quoted” section come from these books. Maybe they will stir (or renew) your interest, too.
