Here’s an English translation via Google.
[Ed.Note, Tues. Jan. 25: As with all rumours, this one really has yet to be confirmed… It is known that Jack Lenz, who worked with Gibson on The Passion of Christ, has submitted a script to him for his perusal… we’ll see if it actually appeals to him enough to produce the movie.]
- J’ai noté que, à part le site officiel (et, bien sûr, religare), il n’y a pas beaucoup de vraiment bonnes ressources sur la foi bahá’íe sur l’internet. Aujourd’hui j’ai trouvé quelque chose d’intéressant: le magazine Les Bahá’ís, une ressource importante pour ceux qui veulent une introduction à la foi bahá’íe. faites-en un lien!
