God passes by by Shoghi( Book )

72 editions published between 1944 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a history of our times written on an unfamiliar theme¬a history filled with love and happiness and vision and strength, telling of triumphs gained and wider triumphs yet to come: and whatever it holds of darkest tragedy it leaves mankind at its close not facing a grim inhospitable future but marching out from the shadows on the high road of an inevitable destiny towards the opened gates of the Promised City of Eternal Peace. These hundred years as we have known them have been distinguished by human achievements and marvels unparalleled in any annals, and also by unparalleled disillusion and loss. But this history tells of wonders greater, mightier, more beneficent, wrought in the same period: and its tidings instead of tears and sorrow are of long forgotten Joy and vanished Power descended from heaven once more into the world of action and the lives of mortal men. It tells of things divine: of the birth of a new World Faith in our midst¬a Faith which comes in succession to all the World Faiths of the past, acknowledging all, fulfilling all, carrying the common purpose of all to its consummation: and bearing to the Christians, "the People of the Gospel," a special summons to rise and help speed its propagation through the whole earth. -- From Introduction (page iii)

The promised day is come by Shoghi( Book )

16 editions published between 1941 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book tells of Baháʼuʼlláh's proclamation of His mission to the rulers of His day, a proclamation that met with derision and silence. Shoghi Effendi shows how the rejection of the principles and the spirit of the new Faith led to religious, political, economic, and moral turmoil that has since engulfed the entire planet. This turmoil, Shoghi Effendi writes, 'is at once a visitation from God and a cleansing process for all mankind. Its fires punish the perversity of the human race, and weld its component parts into one organic, indivisible, world-embracing community.' Yet Baháʼuʼllah proclaimed that 'The whole earth is now in a state of pregnancy.' 'Soon will the present day order be rolled up, and a new one spread out in its stead.'" -- Book jacket
