The City Temple: Introduction






On September 10th, the first Sunday after 'Abdu'l-Baha's arrival in
England, he spoke from the City Temple pulpit to the evening congregation
at the special desire of the Pastor, the Reverend R. J. Campbell.

Though 'Abdu'l-Baha's coming had not been advertised the Church was filled
to its utmost capacity. Few that were there will ever forget the sight of
that venerable figure clad in his Eastern garb, ascending the pulpit
stairs to address a public gathering for the first time in his life. That
this should be at a Christian place of worship in the West has its own
deep significance. Mr. Campbell introduced the visitor with a few simple
words in the course of which he said: We, as the followers of the Lord
Jesus Christ, who is to us and will always be the Light of the World, view
with sympathy and respect every movement of the Spirit of God in the
experience of mankind, and therefore we give greeting to 'Abdu'l-Baha in
the name of all who share the spirit of our Master, and are trying to live
their lives in that Spirit. The Baha'i Movement is very closely akin to, I
think I might say is identical with, the spiritual purpose of
Christianity.

Before 'Abdu'l-Baha left the Church, he wrote in the old Bible used by
generations of preachers, the following words in his own native Persian,
the translation being added as follows:

Inscription in the Old Bible Written by 'Abdu'l-Baha in Persian


This book is the Holy Book of God, of celestial Inspiration. It is
the Bible of Salvation, the Noble Gospel. It is the mystery of the
Kingdom and its light. It is the Divine Bounty, the sign of the
guidance of God.

'Abdu'l-Baha Abbas.
