Bahá’í Administration is a collection of letters and messages from Shoghi Effendi addressed to the Bahá'ís of the United States and Canada from 1922 to 1932.

Excerpts from the Will and Testament of `Abdu'l-Bahá

The first part of the book takes excerpts from the Will and Testament of `Abdu'l-Bahá, which is one of the charters of the Bahá'í administration.

Letters from Shoghi Effendi Guardian of the Bahá’í Cause January 21, 1922-July 17, 1932

The second part consists of almost 50 letters written by Shoghi Effendi over the decade that followed the death of `Abdu'l-Bahá. The directives outline several significant characteristics of how the Bahá'í Faith would develop, and address significant issues that were happening at the time, including American dissidents who disputed with him over his authority, and the actions of Covenant-breakers in Haifa who were expelled by him. He also addresses successes that the Faith achieved from legal rights achieved in Egypt, to recognition within the British Empire, to winning legal rights to the House of Bahá'u'lláh in Baghdad in an international court, and making huge advances in the construction of the American Bahá'í temple.

The worldwide expansion and consolidation of the Faith during this period brought it from the obscurity of a small Middle Eastern religion into a worldwide faith with significantly more adherents and resources. The American community was the driving force behind this growth.
