Shoghi Effendi Through Pilgrim's Eye
The book tells the story of the Guardian’s ministry from 1922 when the young Shoghi Effendi, just 24 years old, was charged with guiding the affairs of a worldwide Faith. Rather than a biography, it draws on the diary entries and letters (many now published for the first time) of the many pilgrims and visitors to the Bahá’í Holy Places in Haifa and ‘Akká, as well as the accounts of those who worked to assist the Guardian in his many extraordinary achievements.
As in all such cases, these recollections must be taken in the spirit of pilgrim notes – interesting and thought-provoking highlights and observations, but not any part of the Bahá’í Sacred Text. They do, however, provide unique insights and inspiration.
