“Baha’u’llah and the New Era” of Dr. J.E. Esslemont.
This was the greatest book I read in 1959, because it paved way for me to read the Holy Books revealed by Baha’u’llah, the Messenger of God in this Age of human maturity.
The reading of the Sacred Scriptures of Baha’u’llah caused me to be happy with some of following concepts:
I love equally the Lord Buddha, Jesus Christ, Baha’u’llah and other Messengers of God.
I love all mankind, believers and non-believers.
I see that all things in the world of creation and in the world of revelation are good.
I believe in the higher and higher civilization on earth built by noble human beings.
I know that I am a thing to be forgotten.
And the coming generations will have greater knowledge about the love and justice of God.
Mankind today are fortunate to have access to all the good and better and Best Books.

Shoghi Effendi says:
“By holding study classes where the Word is read and understood and obtaining a thorough knowledge of the spirit that animated the early believers we can make sure that these newcomers are grounded in the teachings and made real and devoted believers. Books such as the Íqán, Some Answered Questions, the Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh, Nabil’s Narrative and Dr. Esslemont’s book should be read and read over again by every soul who desires to serve the Movement or considers himself an active member of the group.”
