The Wise Men of the West

In “A Thief in the Night,” William Sears used the format of a mystery thriller to tell his story of finding clues in the Bible describing the return of Christ—and how a biblical sleuth might have been able to uncover the true meaning of prophecies pointing to the coming of the Bab and Baha’u’llah.  The book has continued to be a favorite among Baha’is for nearly 60 years. 

“The Wise Men of the West” follows a similar path of search and discovery.  But this time, the scene is set in the time and space of the historical events themselves.  It brings the reader along on a journey from west to east—from America to Europe to the Holy Land, and ultimately to Persia, attempting in the process to remove the obstructions that our Christian friends often find in their path. 

Starting with the teachings of William Miller, it covers the search from 1843 to 1845, so it is more narrowly focused  on the coming of the Bab.  And while it covers some of the same prophecies as “A Thief in the Night,” it also develops additional material from all of the prophetic religions—based on a wider, and in some cases more recent, set of sources. 

We hope Baha’i readers will find The Wise Men of the West not only informative and enjoyable but also something suitable for giving to Christian friends who may be inclined to travel this path of discovery along with our 19th century spiritual explorers; something that can serve them all as a basis for many conversations of spiritual significance.
