Epistle to the Son of the Wolf may be regarded as Bahá’u’lláh’s crowning achievement, which He revealed near the end of His forty-year ministry. In this major work Bahá’u’lláh selects some of the choicest gems from His earlier works, including a number of previously revealed tablets; public proclamation of His eschatological advent; declaration of His mission and purpose; autobiographical narration of key personal experiences; major ethical and moral precepts; explanations of prophecies and their symbolic and spiritual significances; tributes to Bahá’í martyrs; and highlights of other key aspects of Bahá’í history and teachings. In this course, we will give special attention to how Bahá’u’lláh engaged in the public discourses of the society in His day and age and how this may serve as a model for engaging the public discourses of society today.
