Overview

America's Sacred Calling describes a blueprint for creating a new society that uplifts and honors the spritual reality of the human soul while fostering the conditions for humankind to transcend the existential fears, anxieties, and petty concerns of this temporal physical world. Author John Medina examines the Western-dominated worldview that pervades so much of the modern world as we know it, and perceives a rampant materialism that is detrimental to the psychological and spiritual development of humankind. At the same time, Medina explores the writings of Baha'i Faith and uncovers prophecies that foreshadow a glorious destiny for the United States and its peoples. Focusing on the activities of the American Baha'i community and the mission given to its members, Medina finds a great source of hope for the future - a future in which the American nation "will lead all nations spiritually," and play a key role in the unification of the entire planet.
