Dr. John Ebenezer Esslemont
___________________
Hand of the Cause of God, born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, in 1874. He was introduced to the Bahá'í Faith in 1914. His major book, Bahá'u'lláh and the New Era, the first nine chapters of which he wrote during the First World War, was submitted to ‘Abdu'l-Bahá for approval. Esslemont visited ‘Abdu'l- Bahá in 1919—20 and returned to the Holy Land in 1925 to undertake work for Shoghi Effendi. He died there in November 1925 and was posthumously named a Hand of the Cause. Bahá'u'lláh and the New Era has been translated into many languages and has become one of the most widely used of the introductory books to the Bahá'í Faith.
[BD 81]
