The Persian spiritual philosopher and head of the Bahá'í world community, 'Abdu'l-Bahá, boldly stepped into the giddy frivolity of Paris life in 1911 and 1913. As the belle époque and its artistic life began to fade and the clouds of war arose, he carried into France a vision and light that drew people into the paths of morality and spiritual awareness.
'Abdu'l-Bahá in France is a chronicle of the nine precious months spent in that country. His message of love for all and the spiritual reality of the human soul shine in these pages as well as the secret of a life devoted to a peaceful world.
