Written in Light II:
'Abdu'l-Bahá in the Holy Land 
by Jackson Armstrong-Ingram (1954-2004)
This is the second book in a three-volume, picture book series.  This volume will call on a rich collection of photographs of 'Abdu'l-Bahá and his family in Palestine.  Many of the photos have never been published before.

The Gospel of Bahá'u'lláh
Collected from His own words, and from the recollections of His companions, this short volume recounts the events of the Prophet's life. Here is the Gospel for a new era of religious history . . .

Pilgrim's Notes of J. E. Esslemont
When John Esslemont, the author of the classic book Bahá'u'lláh and the New Era, visited 'Abdu'l-Bahá in 1919, he kept meticulous notes. Recently discovered in the archives of the Bahá'í World Center, these fascinating pilgrim's notes give us a new vision of 'Abdu'l-Bahá in the Holy Land.


This series is dedicated to the publication of academic essays and monographs on Bahá'í history and theology. Ten scholarly volumes have already been published. Two additional volumes are in the works at this time:

Notes on Bábí History

The Bahá'í Faith in India
