Coronation on Carmel

 "Coronation on Carmel", the volume that takes the story of the Shrine from 1922 to 1963, is scheduled to be available in the UK in March 2018, and in the USA in early April.

This volume has original information, original photographs and a narrative that tells an amazing story of planning, persistence, and achievement.

Behind, in the middle and in front of everything is the inspiring figure of Shoghi Effendi, initially alone but later leading his small but effective team of Hands of the Cause.

In detail, and aimed at all readers but especially at pilgrims, one chapter describes the architectural features of the arcade and superstructure.

Who was the "man with the golden touch"?Who was the Guardian's "Hercules", and who was his "Titan"? The book lets you know.

Women rise to great  heights in this story, and one of them, Amatu'l-Baha Ruhiyyih Khanum, is quoted  describing some scenes of great power and beauty.

Personally, I love this era.
