Call to Apostleship analyzes the significance and impact the Tablets of the Divine Plan have had on the spread of the Bahai Faith and on the world. The Tablets of the Divine plan are a series of fourteen letters (tablets) that Abdul-Baha, the son of the founder of the Bahai Faith, Bahaullah, wrote during World War I. Four of the letters were addressed to the Bahai community of North America and ten subsidiary ones were addressed to five specific segments of that community. A key focus of these letters was the role of leadership and the importance of introducing the religion into many countries, regions and other areas of the globe. Important to note is that this book examines the Tablets of the Divine Plan in the context of other seminal documents that have impacted the world, such as the Magna Carta, the Constitution of the United States, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and it compares the early diffusion of the Bahai Faith with that of Christianity. Finally, it discusses the meaning of the word apostle and gives three conditions a person needs in order to be considered an apostle who can assist with the spiritual transformation of the planet.
