Lists with This Book. Aug 30, David C. This is perhaps one of the most influential books I have read in my life. It explains the Baha’i concept of progressive revelation and why religious leaders tend not to accept Prophets and religions coming after the advent of the ones they represent.
Although originally written to an Islamic audience, the book contains much material on Christianity and should be interesting to Christians as well.

This book was one of the first I read before I became a Baha’i. It deals largely with prophecy and scriptural meaning and contains the most wonderful and evocative description of what it means to seek truth. Dec 13, Christopher rated it really liked it. Who am I to rate the Word of God. Kitqb 07, Tricia Hague-Blackford added it Recommends it for: This book is exceptional, with answers for all of the questions and metaphors, of the Holy Bible, the Koran, and other world religious Holy Books.
It houses the proofs of Baha’u’llah as having been the Manifestation of God on earth for today. A must read for everyone searching for the Promised One of all Religions. Oct 28, James rated it really kifab it. Some really powerful and moving stuff here. Great food for thought and the soul.
This book sets forth the Baha’i theology of progressive revelation. It also serves as exegesis of the Koran. I think next time I’ll read both books at the same time.

KETĀB-E IQĀN – Encyclopaedia Iranica
This is an excellent book. I turn down pages that have significant or important messages.
I turned over 50 pages. This Holy Book of Baha’i speaks continually of iqaj Manifestations of the divine and Wellsprings of Divine Knowledge which have been given to us throughout history within the various religious traditions. It’s difficult to review a primary religious text.
I can, however, attempt to give a taste of what the Kitag seems to be about, from my perspective. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, he claims, are all reflections of a single godhead, manifesting from time to time when necessary to stoke the flames of faith. Consider It’s difficult to review a primary religious text.
Were it to say now, “I am the sun of yesterday,” it would speak the truth. And should it, bearing the sequence of time in mind, claim to be other than the sun, it would still speak the truth. The principle difficulty in this approach is overcoming the resistance of entrenched belief systems.
Once established, a dogmatic religion cannot countenance a departure from its rule set without ceasing to exist by definition.
It’s wonderfully written and poetic, though I often felt it probably lost something in the translation from Persian my edition was translated by Shoghi Effendi. Gems of Divine Mysteries Javahiru’l-Asrara short work Baha’u’llah revealed aroundrelates to themes found in both the Iqan and in the Seven Valleys.
A central theme of the book is the return of the Promised One in a human guise. It also considers the symbolic meaning of many Islamic and biblical terms and explores such matters as the cause of the rejection of the prophets iktab the past and the danger of a literal interpretation of scripture.

Jul 29, Jonathan Widell rated it really liked it Shelves: The Book of Certitude is a reminder that Bahaism is also a Koranic religion. The pain which caused Bahaullah to write it is palpable on its pages but, in general, it has generated light instead of heat.
The text is grace itself. The argument is subtle but simple: Jan 04, Martin Genet rated it it was amazing. I have always found belief systems fascinating and the Bahai faith particularly interests me because it embraces and accepts a number of faiths.
I think the faith has elements that would appeal to many.
