Setting Up

Alright, you've got your book.

Will you study alone, with a friend or in a group?

Will you study in a lush park, on your cozy couch, or in a Facebook group?

Can you use your thirty minute train ride in the mornings, your lunch break, or time spent with your friends?

Study & Note

Now it’s time to dive in and
explore the depths of Revelation.

God Passes By, The Revelation of Baha'u'llah or tools like bahairesearch.com may offer history and context to what you're studying.

Jot down your insights, digitally or simply using a notebook and pen, so you can continually draw on them later.

Turning insights into action

The Guardian tells us that we 'cannot catch the spirit of the Cause through the reading of books alone'.

How can you apply your insights to service in your personal life, community or institutions?

How about using them on your next home visit, in your study circle or as your next conversation starter?

Reflect & Share

Reflect on how your newfound insights have changed your patterns of thought and action.

Also, what book did you study and why? What tools did you use? What challenges did you face? What recommendations do you have? Share it all far and wide.

Happy studying!
