Latest book by Third Guardian of Baha’i Faith:

Numerous letters, articles and commentaries addressing the importance of the continuation of the Guardianship, the critical center of the World Order of Baha’u’llah, was written and originally dispatched to the Baha’i world by Joel Bray Marangella since his appointment as successor to the Guardianship of the Baha’i Faith by Charles Mason Remey, second Guardian of the Faith, via both direct mailing and through postings on the Internet. Selected communications were also published in a book titled The World Order of Baha’u’llah Continues to Unfold. In this latest book by the Guardian titled, In Defense of the Continuing Guardianship, he has focused on providing undeniable proof, as found in both the Will and Testament of Abdu’l Baha and in the writings of Shoghi Effendi, including his historic messages to the Baha’i world during the closing seven years of his ministry, which in complete accordance with the Will and Testament of Abdu’l Baha, had undeniably faithfully provided for the continuance of the Guardianship following his passing. Consequently this essential and highest Institution of Baha’i Administrative Order had not come to an untimely and tragic end as falsely and blindly claimed by the then Hands of the Cause of the Baha’i Faith (With a single notable exception).

Many of the Guardian’s letters, article and commentaries contained herein have been collected electronically and can be viewed on the Guardian’s website at www.bahai-guardian.com.

Loving this book, I am....
....I had no idea of the struggle
that existed in affirming the Orthodox Baha'i faith.
A relentless pursuit, then and now!
