These later communications unfold a clear vision of the relation between the Baháí community and the entire process of social evolution under the dispensation of Baháulláh. The distinction between the Baháí community and the sects and congregations of former religions had been made apparent, but the present volume establishes the Bahai Administrative Order as the nucleus and pattern of the world civilization emerging.In the introduction, Horace Holley, a notable Hand of the Cause wrote:In light of the existing international chaos, they reveal the most significant Truth of this era, namely that the old conception of religion, which separated spirituality from the fundamental functions of civilization, compelling men to abide by conflicting principles of faith, of politics and of economics, has been forever destroyed.
