 Bah' History
In the Bah' Faith this has led to two distinct religious attitudes: the conviction that all peoples will find their highest religious aspirations fulfilled in the Bah' Faith; and the belief that the Bah' Faith is an inclusive religious movement with little need for barriers between members and non-members.
With regard to the administration of the Bah' Faith, however, although the Bah' institutions operate through processes that include consulting with the generality of the Bah's, there is an expectation of loyalty and obedience to the decisions of the central figures and institutions (see "Human Rights.6").
Although the Bb movement is separate from the Bah' Faith and should be treated so, Bah's regard the Bb movement as inextricably bound up with the origins of their own Faith and thus consider the start of the Bb movement in 1844 as the start of their own religion. /?file=encyclopedia_history.html

 Book review: A Short History of the Bahá'í Faith
Allowing that "all religions, including the Bahá'í Faith, will, to some extent, contain echoes of each other," Momen states his intent: "I hope to show that the Bahá'í Faith also has its own teachings that are new and innovative" (3).
As an "engaged" scholar, Smith demonstrates that Bahá'ís are unafraid of their history but are still coming to terms with it, because the Báb of faith, and the Bahá'í popular view of the Bábí religion, have yet to be integrated and reconciled with historical and sociological considerations.
Momen himself rightly classes Smith's A Short History of the Bahá'í Faith as "the best brief general history of the Bahá'í Faith" (147, giving 1995 as the publication date); Momen's A Short Introduction to the Bahá'í Faith has a similar status. /reviews/smith.history.html
