In the Beginning Was a Word opens the reader to the ideas of how we as humanity understand sacred scripture, and how this understanding can enable humanity to build a World Commonwealth. To add to our comprehension is the Bahai Faith, helping to bring about such a World Commonwealth where all of humanity will live in peace. In chapters 19, author John Hatcher discusses how language is used by the Manifestations (or Prophets) of God, and helps humankind to become more spiritual. There is an exploration of the major differences between literal and symbolic interpretations of scripture, and what is meant by the phrase Word of God and how this Word can transform society. Chapters 1012 delve into topics such as the difference between direct and indirect language in sacred scriptures, how words from the Dispensation of one Manifestation lead to the Covenant of that one Manifestation and then prophesy the coming of the subsequent Manifestation, as well as the history of the central figures of the Bahai Faith.
