High Endeavours: Messages to Alaska   By: (1897-1957)

Book cover

High Endeavours: Messages to Alaska by Effendi Shoghi is a beautifully written book that captivates the reader from the very beginning. This collection of messages serves as a reminder of the importance of unity, love, and spiritual growth in the face of adversity.

Effendi Shoghi, the author, skillfully brings together a series of heartfelt letters addressing the Baha’is in Alaska during their early years. Through his words, Shoghi emphasizes the significance of the Alaskan community's contribution to the growth of the Baha’i Faith and the collective efforts needed for its advancement worldwide.

One of the most notable aspects of this book is its ability to inspire the reader. Shoghi's messages constantly remind us of our potential as individuals and as a community to bring about positive change. He emphasizes the need for resilience and perseverance in the face of challenges and encourages us to rise above our limitations. His words are a gentle yet powerful reminder to always aim for our highest potential and to never shy away from difficult tasks.

Moreover, High Endeavours: Messages to Alaska delves into the eternal themes of love and unity. Shoghi's letters touch upon the importance of fostering these qualities within our own hearts and nurturing them in our relationships with others. He reminds us that love is the binding force that creates harmony and cohesion among individuals, ultimately leading to a better and more peaceful world.

The book additionally provides a glimpse into the early Baha’i community in Alaska, shedding light on the remarkable dedication and sacrifice of those who initiated and nurtured the faith in this remote region. Effendi Shoghi builds a vivid picture of the challenges they faced and the progress they made, showcasing the perseverance and devotion of these early believers.

One aspect that could have been further developed in the book is the historical context. While Shoghi touches on various challenges faced by the Alaskan Baha’is, a deeper exploration of the time period would have provided a clearer understanding of the societal and cultural landscape in which they operated. However, this minor critique does not substantially detract from the overall impact of the book.

In conclusion, High Endeavours: Messages to Alaska is a remarkable compilation of letters that resonate with readers long after they put the book down. Effendi Shoghi's powerful words serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration, urging us to embrace unity, love, and spiritual growth in our own lives. This book is a valuable addition to anyone seeking guidance and motivation on their spiritual journey.
