In ancient Persia, the great prophet Zoroaster brought to his people away of life that united them for 1000 years, and made the land now known as Iran into a fertile, prosperous region. Likewise, his example exerted a profound influence upon Plato, Aristotle, and the development of Judeo-Christian thought. Although some of these teachings have been preserved in the sacred scripture known as the Avesta, almost nothing is known about Zoroaster the man. Zoroaster: Life and Work of the Forerunner in Persia is the first general-audience biography of the great Persian sage. This compelling and readable story shows how, through connecting completely with the guidance offered him by Divine Grace, the young boy Saadi matures steadily until he realizes his task and his true identity. As the long-awaited herald, Zoroaster, it was his purpose to unite the people of Persia into a belief of one God, Ahuramazda, and to announce the coming of the Son of Man, the Soashyant, who would lead this world into and through the Last Judgement. Before his arrival, the land of Persia was consumed by natural disasters that destroyed most of the people and almost all of their structures. A new society had to be built literally from the ground up, this time based upon God's Laws, rather than man's.
As we today are facing a new millennium, as natural disasters threaten our very existence, Zoroaster: Life and Work of the Forerunner in Persia is a book of particular relevance.
