Letter of 19 April 1957

19 April 1957
Dear Bahá’í Sister:
The Beloved Guardian has been very deeply impressed with the latest book of our dear departed co-worker, Hand of the Cause, George Townshend, “Christ and Bahá’u’lláh”. If you have not received copies, you should send to England for them, so that the Friends may be familiar with its contents.
This book outlines clearly the relationship of Christ and Bahá’u’lláh, and presents the manner in which the Bahá’í Faith is setting up the Kingdom of God, which the Christians are praying for.
The Guardian feels that your Assembly should make very wide use of this book. You should secure publicity regarding it in the Newspapers, book reviews, where possible. Copies should be sent to the Religious leaders, particularly to the Lutheran high Dignitaries.
This book is a challenge to religious leaders, and of course, should be sent, also to those who opposed the Temple Land sale. It may bring some opposition and criticism, but in the long run, it will produce excellent results for the Faith.
The Guardian sends you his loving Greetings….
