In His Presence:
Visits to ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
Here are collected three of the most important, and most touching, accounts of pilgrimages to the Holy Land in the time of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. These are three classic works of Bahá’í history and literature.
Roy Wilhelm’s account is from 1907. Stanwood Cobb’s remarkable “Memories of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá” discusses his meetings with the Master in 1908, 1910, 1912, and 1913. Genevieve Coy made her pilgrimage in 1920, and spent a week in the Holy Household. All three others record their experiences faithfully and allow us to share the joys and pains of their visits. The experience is unforgettable.
We hope that republishing these accounts will put a new generation of believers in touch with their spiritual heritage.
