Days of Remembrance offers forty-five selections from the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh, most of which have not been previously translated or published in English, revealed specifically for, or relating to, the nine holy days annually commemorated by the Baha’i community. It has been published in anticipation of the celebration of the two hundred-year anniversaries of the Birth of Bahá'u'lláh and the Birth of the Báb in 2017 and 2019 respectively, for which Bahá’i communities across the planet are currently preparing.
The observance of holy days is an important feature of every religion, and the upcoming bicentenary commemorations, the first of which will occur in October 2017, will bring together communities through gatherings open to all, in villages, towns, and cities around the world.
I must also say that this is a beautifully bound book. Many hardbound books are called "clothbound" but this one lives up to the name more elegantly than any Baha'i book I've seen before. The color is a deep vibrant blue, the gold foil title shines, and the texture of the fabric makes you want to carry it with you wherever you go. It is a perfect reflection of the sacred nature of the words inside.
