A brief description:

Does God Still Speak to Humanity Today?

Author Gary Matthews documents why he believes that the Revelation of Baháúlláh is divine in origin, representing a unique summons of unequaled importance to humanity. The book contains discussions of Baha'i prophecies concerning historical events and scientific discoveries. Among the events and discoveries discussed are the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the worldwide erosion of ecclesiastical authority, the Holocaust, and the development of nuclear weapons.

In the 19th century Baháúlláh prophesied the 'lamentations of Berlin', the downfall of Germany in two world wars; he warned against the development of nuclear weapons; He foresaw the day when space travel would be possible . . .

Who was Baháúlláh? He claimed to be the Messenger of God for this age. He said His teaching held the key to a peaceful and united world. Is this true? How can we test the validity of this claim?

Gary L. Matthews suggests a number of possible ways. He examines the prophecies, predictions, life and character of Baháúlláh - and comes to an astounding conclusion.
