While we have only patchy evidence from the early history of most of the world's religions, A Lost History of The Baha'i Faith presents us with a remarkably clear testimony to how the process of winnowing worked in a modern one. Behai and Stetson present a fascinating account of how the Bahai tradition underwent a schism that pitted authoritarian belief and personal charisma versus the free expression of a universal spirituality. As such this book should be of interest to all students and scholars of the 'new religious movements' of the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as to anyone who wonders why idealism and universalist ideas alone do not suffice to change the world.
--Dr Neil Douglas-Klotz, former chair of the Mysticism Group of the American Academy of Religion and author of Desert Wisdom: A Nomad's Guide to Life's Big Questions from the Heart of the Native Middle East and The Sufi Book of Life.
