Who is Abdu’l Baha?
Abdu’l-Baha (1844-1921) was the appointed Successor of Baha’u’llah; the authoritative interpreter of His Teachings. Imprisoned for many years by the Ottoman Turkish Sultan he was ultimately freed after the great 1908 overthrow of the Ottoman Dynasty.
Four years later he would travel to North America at the request of the relatively large community of North American Believers ultimately cris-crossing the continent and enjoying an incredibly warm reception not only from the Baha’is but also from the ministers and congregations of the many churches where he was invited to deliver addresses and from the press.
This film is an account of that Journey to the West.
