A comment about these books:

“These four booklets are excellent. After my thirty-three years as a Baha’i, it takes a girl who was about 9 when I first saw her to clarify all sorts of things and fill in all sorts of gaps. Well done, Helena. Brilliant!” AK

A comment about these books plus “The Bahá’í Faith”:

“… have just finished reading the set of 5 books…  such a valuable contribution to enabling high and low alike to be introduced to our beloved Faith in such a simple but comprehensive overview. … This is the best I have seen and hope that it will be available to the Baha’is of the world to share.” JM
