One of the most riveting stories of Divine Revelation, 'Midsummer Noon' brings the dramatic history of the birth of the Bábí Faith to life. This narrative of the life of The Báb recounts His proclamation, suffering and eventual martyrdom from the perspective of those who had the opportunity to be in His Presence. From His mother, to His wife, to believers and onlookers alike, this audio play takes the written accounts and dramatizes them into an expereince that will captivate and inspire. One of the most classic, memorable, and beloved Bahá'i inspired recordings of the previous decades, this is a story that should be in every Bahá'í library.
