The Gleanings — Forum
Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh is a compilation of extracts from selected tablets by Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í Faith. Shoghi Effendi nurtured the Bahá'í organization from 1921 to 1957 and made the selection. He also conducted the translation, first published in 1935. The work consists of a selection of the most characteristic passages. According to Effendi, the passages come from the whole range of Bahá'u'lláh's writings, dated from about 1853 to 1892.
The book has five major divisions including:
The "Day of God" (sec. 1-18)
The Manifestation of God (sec. 19-69)
The Soul and its Immortality (sec. 70-99)
The World Order and the Most Great Peace (sec. 100-121)
The Duties of the Individual and the Spiritual Meaning of Life (sec. 122-166)
