Pathways to Transformation
The human race has entered a new stage in its collective development. Faced with both unprecedented perils and extraordinary opportunities, it becomes increasingly clear that we cannot avoid the spiritual and social challenges of jointly building a peaceful and progressive planetary civilization that embraces all its peoples. We are already inextricably engaged in a process of global transformation that affects both our inner lives and external conditions.
Pathways to Transformation was first published in 2001 and is primarily a compilation selected from the authoritative writings of the Bahá’í Faith. Its importance lies in its systematic presentation of the aims and vision of Bahá’u’lláh, and of the approach to individual and collective learning adopted by the Bahá’í community in working to fulfil them.
“Pathways to Transformation is a concise and accessible compilation that has been an invaluable aid to me on my journey as a new Baha’i. This has been my go-to handbook for furthering my understanding of the Bahai Faith and the selection of writings, alongside the varied and clearly outlined topics, has provided a thorough overview of the teachings for me.
With the help of this book, I have been able to quickly build a foundation of knowledge, confidence and capacity that has been essential for my spiritual development” — Sophie Appleton, Huon Valley, Tasmania.
“At 76 my declaration to the Bahá’í Faith was but twelve months ago. A lifetime of Catholicism found me seeking an alternative. An avid reader, I have perused many publications on the Báb, Bahá’u’lláh, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, and the origin and growth of the Bahá’í Faith. In Pathways to Transformation I have found a concise presentation which encapsulates all aspects of the Bahá’í Journey. This is a constant reference book. I commend this book to all” — Sue Burke, Hobart.
