In the course on Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, Baha’u’llah’s last major work, which is a single letter containing His own anthology of His writings, we will read the book slowly over a period of six weeks, examining major themes of Bahá’u’lláh’s revelation: God as the source of His revelation; Who Bahá'u'lláh is; why He came; proofs of His station; His general teachings; the sufferings He endured; humanity’s responses to His revelation; and accounts of martyrs that illustrate the transforming power of the Bahá’í Faith. Revealed for an enemy of the Bahá’í Faith, Shaykh Muhammad-Taqí (surnamed "Son of the Wolf"), the book warns him about the consequences of his persecution of the Faith. Containing as it does Bahá'u'lláh’s quotations from His own revelation, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf provides an excellent summary of themes He considered important to understanding the Bahá’í Faith.
