In this collection of essays, memoirs, stories and poems Baháí artists reflect on what they do.
Where does art intersect with faith? In this collection of essays, memoirs, stories and poems Baháí artists reflect on what they do. The different arts represented include drama, visual art, music and literature.
Art can provide answers not only to the Why? of things in individual lives it can illumine whole societies. So can religion. Baháís believe that just as religion has influenced the development of past civilizations, so now the revelation of Baháulláh will bring a global civilization into being. Art will play a key role in this process.
. . . in this wonderful new age, art is worship.Abdul-Bahá
