Baha’i writings to know

While there are many writings about the Baha’i Faith, we believe it is important to go directly to the source content of Baha’u’llah. With more than 6,000,000 words there is a topic of life covered here. Baha’u’llah (1817-1892), the Founder of the Baha’i Faith, is recognized as the most recent in a line of Divine Messengers that stretches back beyond recorded time and includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad.

Here is a recommended reading list to help you get started. Remember, if you have a question we would love to help in your process of understanding.
