كتاب جديد عن الدين البهائى تاليف Rafael Ceratto يشرح فيه نشاة الدين البهائى فى ايران واعلانه فى العراق ويختتم بقول الفيلسوف الروسى الشهير ” ليو تولستوى ” يعتبر الدين البهائى واحدة من الاديان المتصفة بالسمو والنقاء “
The followers of this religion which, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica, is the second most widespread in the world after Christianity, number more than six million globally, but have been oppressed by the Shiite clergy in Iran since its inception. The Bahá’ís have been, and continue to be, the victims of the worst kind of atrocities instigated in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
In this book, Rafael Cerrato, a Christian scholar, writes a narrative introduction to the history and evolution of this new, world-embracing spiritual culture. He believes the Bahá’ís have an important role to play in the world of the future, if judged by the work it has undertaken, when allowed, in key areas such as gender equality, education and social development.
This book contains ample documentation from different governments and agencies, such as the Spanish Parliament and the United Nations, which have condemned the persecutions suffered by this remarkable religious minority. Anyone desirous of gaining an understanding of the complex Persia (Iran) of today, as well as its crucial relationship to the Bahá’í Faith (which Leo Tolstoy referred to as “one of the highest and purest religious doctrines”) would do well to read it.
