THE CRIMSON BOOK: BOOK OF THE COVENANT
The Sacred Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha (includes Kitab-i-'Ahd within)
The Book of the Everlasting Covenant of God. The Twin Central and sacred Holy Books of the Baha'i Faith form One single "scroll written within" (Kitab-i-'Ahd) and "on the back (the sacred Will and Testament of 'Abdu'l-Baha) sealed with seven seals" (Revelation 5:1 RSV). Here Baha'u'llah and 'Abdu'l-Baha continue God's Covenant of the throne-line of King David (Psalm 89; Genesis 49:10) as the presidents, executive branch, and "irremovable member for life" of the genuine Universal House of Justice of Baha'u'llah that is to last for ever.
It includes the most current authoritative translations of the original texts; important footnotes for teaching; the retention of key Persian and Arabic terms; the legal Addendum concerning the inheritance of 'Abdu'l-Baha's son; authoritative comments of Shoghi Effendi; adornment with excepts of relevant Original texts in fine Persian calligraphy; Baha'u'llah's instructions to the faithful for the fulfillment of the Promise of Jesus for the removal of sins; an important statement from the Supreme Pen on the hidden potentialities of "the Crimson Book;" and the original "Prayer of the Covenant" disseminated during the ministry of 'Abdu'l-Baha.

Some Answered Questions
The original preserved text of Some Answered Questions (SAQ) is now available in hard copy format.
This book gives the answers of a great World Teacher to numerous questions which deeply trouble modern man in this post-modern Age of Transition. First published in London in 1908, Some Answered Questions is as timely now as it was then; the need for it has grown more acute with the years. The many questions which it considers remain either unanswered or misunderstood in the minds of the mass of humanity.
What is man? Is there a God? How can we know God? What of the Reality of the Unseen? Miracles, prophecy, predestination, immortality, free will, reincarnation, baptism, the Trinity, healing? Here, too, are commentaries on and explanations of Biblical passages and the metaphysical underpinnings of scientific worldviews suited to our age of increasing maturity.
Some Answered Questions is intended for the searcher with an open and independent mind. The answers are unorthodox. Religion and Spirituality, stripped of ritualism and tradition, become reasonable and alive. If the search for truth is coupled with a dream of justice for all and a world at peace, if the student is willing to receive an idea by which he or she may live meaningfully both for true-self and for others, then here you will find an authentic challenge to match that dream.
This is the original 1908 translation that preserves the prophecy of the coming of the "7th Angel" made by 'Abdu'l-Baha in this volume (p. 66) in 1908 and approved by Him. Contrary to the Covenant-breakers assertions, Some Answered Questions is NOT "pilgrim's notes"--but forms a collection of talks in the authenticity of the written Tablets of 'Abdu'l-Baha approved and corrected by Him (with His own hand during His lifetime) in the potency of genuine Baha'i Holy Writ:
“Baha’u’llah has made it clear enough that only those things that have been revealed in the form of Tablets have a binding power over the friends… Those talks of the Master that were later reviewed by Him, corrected or in some other form considered authentic by Himself, such as Some Answered Questions, are considered as Tablets and therefore have the necessary binding power” (Shoghi Effendi, to the United States Publishing Committee, December 29, 1931).
This original re-print edition of Some Answered Questions combats the various changed false-text corrupted “editions” of the Covenant-breakers and contains a unique preface written by Dr. Leland Jensen and updated for current times along with a New Appendix including the Tablet of the Dichotomy and 'Abdu'l-Baha's the Tablet of Wood, Iron and Gold. The perfect teaching text (and required reading: the first 90 pages) for the full experience of the Baha'i Fireside series.
