All of the Ruhi memorization quotations in one handy pocket reference that is so beautifully designed that it doubles as a gift booklet for seekers.
How to use them:
For Ruhi Classes: These make great gifts at the beginning or end. No more piles of paper to keep track of, this booklet gives you every memorization quote from all seven books. It's 4x6 size is bigger than a mini-book, but still fits neatly into a pocket.
As a gift for seekers: The presentation is carefully designed to highlight the beautiful quotations and prayers while minimizing the workbook aspect. The introduction mentions Bahá'í study circles in a way that will encourage seekers to participate, while stressing the fact that the Writings stand alone as a source of inspiration and guidance. You will feel comfortable giving this to the same people you might give the Hidden Words or Prayers.
How it is organized:
To keep it closely linked to the Ruhi classes, I kept all of the quotations for each book together in separate chapters that are clearly labeled. But to make it more seeker friendly, I put the shorter, seeker-friendly quotes from books 1,3,5 & 7 in the first secion, called Reflections on the Life of the Spirit, and the longer quotations from books 2, 4 and 6 at the end in a section called Meditations on a Life of Service to God. I gathered the prayers from all seven books and put them in their own section in the middle, making it easier to know which selections are prayers and which are quotations. This makes it a much more versatile teaching tool that will ultimately bring more people into Study Circles.
