Revisioning the Sacred: New Perspectives on a Bahá’í Theology

Studies in the Babi and Baha’i Religions, Volume 8

This is the first academic volume of essays dedicated to the understanding of Bahá’í theology as an area of Bahá’í Studies. It’s a historic attempt to investigate Bahá’í theological teachings and Bahá’í Sacred Texts using systematic and scholarly methods.

Dann May discusses implications of the Bahá’í principle of the unity of all religions. Stephen Lambden investigates the unknowability of God. Seena Fazel discusses the importance of interreligious dialogue in Baha’i communities. Keven Brown talks about the relationship between Hermetic texts and Baha’u’llah’s teachings, and parable vs historical accounts. Jack McLean makes the case for a more engaged, instead of removed, approach in Baha’i scholarship that is quite relevant to current academic discourse on a range a of topics.

Since the Bahá’í Faith has no clergy, the opinions of the authors are only their own. They are not intended as authoritative statements of Bahá’í belief, but the insights these scholars bring to readers can inspire a closer, more prayerful, reflection on the Bahá’í Sacred Texts.
