Overview


The Prisoner and the Kings is a riveting historical account of a prisoner in a Turkish penal colony and the letters he sent to religious and secular leaders that changed the world. Between 1867 and 1873 a solitary prisoner in a Turkish penal colony wrote a series of letters to the kings and emperors of the day, predicting with amazing accuracy the course of modern history: the fall of several nations, the overthrow of certain individual monarchs, the decline of specific religious institutions, the rise of communism, and the threat of nuclear weapons. The prisoner was Bahaullah, Prophet and Founder of the Bahai Faith, one of the most remarkable figures in this or any age.
