The Baha'i Faith In Words and imagesMaidenhead Bahá’ís are joining with other Berkshire Bahá’í communities in offering to donate copies of an exciting new book on the Bahá’í Faith to local schools.

Beautifully illustrated by acclaimed photographer Paul Slaughter, The Bahá’í Faith in Words and Images provides a fresh and unique introduction to the worldwide Bahá’í community.

The book is being offered to schools because while its design is outstanding, its co-authors are both senior academics and former editors of The Bahá’í Studies Review. So it is comprehensive and scholarly but always with an engaging and contemporary feel. And the authors do not duck the questions that many of those investigating the Faith might ask: ‘What are the qualifications for Bahá’í membership?’; ‘Can the Faith avoid major division?’; ‘How will Bahá’í organization evolve?’; ‘What will be the Bahá’í Faith’s relationship with other religions?’.

The Bahá’í Faith forms part of the Agreed RE Syllabus for the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead (and many other LEA areas in Berkshire and nationally).  The Bahá’í Faith  is also represented on the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education in the Royal Borough (and many other SACREs nationally).

The Maidenhead Bahá’í community is reaching out to local schools with this offer to donate.  If for some reason we’ve missed your school, do please make contact via email: bahais.maidenhead@gmail.com.
