He became one of the spiritually eminent American Bah ' s, a brilliant administrator and gifted teacher. Appointed a Hand of the Cause of God in 1951, he served the Guardian in Haifa until 1957 as Secretary-General of the International Bah ' Council, and afterwards as one of the Custodians of the Bah ' Faith.This book is more than a biography.
