How do I become Baha’i?

Eileen
Maddocks

Eileen Maddocks grew up in Maine. Her mother, who was raised in the Millerite tradition in the Advent Christian Church, studied and pondered Christian history and theology on her own and became a Sunday School teacher in the Universalist Church. The stories of her Advent Christian grandparents and their church were family lore, but Eileen was raised in liberal Protestantism. She received a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts from the University of Kansas and raised two children. Seeking and searching for spiritual truth were intertwined with the responsibilities of supporting a family. In 1989, just when the bottom seemed to drop out of her life, she discovered the Baha'i Faith and subsequently served at the Baha'i World Centre in Haifa, Israel, for many years as a researcher and writer. Upon retirement, she returned to her New England heritage and now lives in bucolic Vermont, which is a haven for artists and writers. Her first book, 1844: Convergence in Prophecy for Judaism, Christianity, Islam and the Baha’i Faith, was published in 2018. Biblical prophecies in the Hebrew Bible are her strong interest because so many of them either allude to, and sometimes proclaim, the coming of Baha’u’llah and the Baha'i era. Her new series of books is a trilogy, The Coming of the Glory: How the Hebrew Scriptures Reveal the Plan of God, which presents in chronological order the Hebrew prophets within the context of Israelite history. The missions of the Hebrew prophets were primarily dedicated to the spiritual renewal of the teachings of Moses. However, many of their prophecies foresaw events twenty-five centuries ahead to our time. Volume 1 of The Coming of the Glory was published in April 2020 and explores the prophecies found in the earlier Hebrew scriptures. Volume 2 will be released in April 2022 and covers the pre-exilic prophets, and Volume 3 will cover the post-exilic prophets.

In her new series of books, The Coming of the Glory, she presents a systematic, chronological order of these prophesies within the context of Israelite history and biblical scholarship. Volume 1 of The Coming of the Glory explores the prophecies found in the earlier Hebrew scriptures. Volume 2 covers the pre-exilic prophets and Volume 3 the post-exilic prophets, all within the context of ancient Israelite history.
