This video captures a dramatic presentation based on accounts from the lives of Juliet Thompson and Howard MacNutt. In this play, called “The Lightning of the Covenant”, we hear their experiences with Abdu’l-Baha, the Center of the Covenant.
You can read more about Abdu’l-Baha, including a biography of His life, His Unique Station, a selection of His Writings, and other articles dedicated to Him here on Bahai.org.
You can read a tribute to Howard MacNutt here on Baha’i Blog: Howard MacNutt – Disciple of Abdu’l-Baha
And you can find out more about Juliet Thompson here.
Bahman Rahmatian, who plays Howard MacNutt and in whose home this play was filmed, may be familiar to you from his play “Exile to Paradise” which you can watch here: Exile to Paradise – A Play About Ridvan by Bahman Rahmatian
