The Essence of the Covenant

Features, History, and Implications

The Essence of the Covenant discusses the features, history, and implications of the “essence” of Bahá’u’lláh’s Covenant: the continuity of divine guidance through the Faith’s authorized institutions. This text explores such themes as the purpose of the Covenant, the station and function of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the scriptural foundation and authority of the Guardianship and the Universal House of Justice, the break in the line of Guardians, the infallibility of the Universal House of Justice, and 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.
