Our Books
We publish inspirational works including memoirs, fiction, poetry, and general works showing faith in action. Our books are written from a Bahá’í perspective. Some overtly mention or portray the Bahá’í Faith, while others address spiritual themes in a manner compatible with the Bahá'í Faith without directly mentioning the religion.

Company History
One Voice Press was founded in October, 2010 by owners Dale and Kathleen Lehman. The company was inspired by Planet Bahá’í (www.planetbahai.org), a website run by the Lehmans featuring essays written from a Bahá’í perspective on a wide variety of topics. After publishing a collection of these essays through a print-on-demand printer, the Lehmans decided to create their own company to publish additional collections of their material as well as the works of other authors. Solicitation of manuscripts started about five months prior to the official formation of the company.
Our first title, the poetry and short fiction collection The Flower at the End of the World by David Erickson, was released in July 2011, while our second title, the biography Return to Tyendinaga by Evelyn Loft Watts and Patricia Verge, was released in December, 2011.

About the Bahá’í Faith

The Bahá'í Faith is the youngest of the world's independent religions. Its founder, Bahá'u'lláh (1817-1892), is regarded by Bahá'ís as the most recent in the line of Messengers of God that stretches back beyond recorded time and that includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad.

The central theme of Bahá'u'lláh's message is that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification in one global society. God, Bahá'u'lláh said, has set in motion historical forces that are breaking down traditional barriers of race, class, creed, and nation and that will, in time, give birth to a universal civilization. The principal challenge facing the peoples of the earth is to accept the fact of their oneness and to assist the processes of unification.

One of the purposes of the Bahá'í Faith is to help make this possible. A worldwide community of some five million Bahá'ís, representative of most of the nations, races and cultures on earth, is working to give Bahá'u'lláh's teachings practical effect. Their experience will be a source of encouragement to all who share their vision of humanity as one global family and the earth as one homeland.

ONE VOICE PRESS PICKS UP TWO NEW WORKS
Essex, MD, July 26, 2012 - One Voice Press has acquired rights to two new works: a coloring book and an adult speculative fiction novel.
Bahá'í Coloring Book for Children and Families, created by Jesica Nkouaga, contains a collection of 24 illustrations paired with brief passages from the Bahá'í Holy Writings. The passages deal with spiritual concepts such as love, joy, the importance of family, education, kindness to animals, service, and unity. The illustrations present settings that suggest the full range of human diversity, but the faces are left without features so children can draw them in as they like.
The Prophet of San Marcos Dump by Michael Vincent is a speculative fiction novel exploring what might happen if God revealed Himself through a new Prophet in today's world. The allegoric tale follows the life of Tom Dowten, an down-on-his-luck heavy equipment operator in a landfill whose life is transformed when he reluctantly becomes the principal disciple of the new Prophet.
One Voice Press President and CEO Dale Lehman says the company intends to release both of these books in 2012. The coloring book is slated for release in September and the novel for December. In addition, a previously-acquired collection of essays on Bahá'í themes, A Planet with a View co-authored by Lehman and his wife Kathleen (who is also the company's Vice President and Editor), is planned for release in the fall. "These three titles double our product line," Lehman says, "but more importantly they greatly diversify it."
