The Bahai Revelation audiobook - part 2
The Bahai Revelation audiobook by Thornton Chase Thornton Chase (1847 -- 1912) is commonly recognized as the first convert to the Bah?'? Faith of Occidental background. During his life he organized many Bah?'? activities in Chicago and Los Angeles and was considered a prominent Bah?'?. In 1894, Chase met Ibrahim Kheiralla, a Bah?'? from Beirut who had recently come to the United States. Chase and a small group of Chicagoans began to study the Bah?'? Faith with him. By 1895 he had completed the class and become a Bah?'?. In 1907 Chase was able to go on pilgrimage. Though Chase was able to be with 'Abdu'l-Bah? in Akka for only three days, the experience transformed him. 'Abdu'l-Bah?, highly impressed by Chase's qualities, conferred on him the title Th?bit, "steadfast". On returning home, Chase wrote an account of his pilgrimage, which was published under the title In Galilee in 1908. The short work gives a detailed and poignant description of 'Abdu'l-Bah?'s home and family in Akka, as well as a moving description of 'Abdu'l-Bah? himself. Chase then turned his thoughts to an introductory book on the Bah?'? Faith. Published as The Bahai Revelation in 1909, this work was one of the most comprehensive and accurate introductions to the Bah?'? Faith written by an early American Bah?'?. It continued to be reprinted until the 1920s. The work emphasized the Bah?'? Faith and its teachings as a vehicle for personal spiritual transformation. Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of the Bah?'? Faith, later honoured him as one of the Disciples of 'Abdu'l-Bah? (also termed "Heralds of the Covenant"). (Adapted from Wikipedia)
