Search for Values: Ethics in Bahá’í Thought, Volume 15
Studies in the Babi and Baha’i Religions, Volume 15
This book is a first attempt by several Bahá’í scholars to come to terms with the implications of a Bahá’í system of ethics in modern life–from the university to the family.
Udo Schaefer argues that Bahá’u’lláh’s writings provide humanity with a “Straight Path” to happiness with a coherent ethical system. Christian theologian John Hick asks: Can there be only one true religion?
In addition, three authors examine the early efforts of some believers to translate this ethical vision into reality in Bahá’í history: Christopher Buck writes on the career of Alain Locke, noted African American philosopher; Moojan Momen introduces Jamál Effendi, early Bahá’í teacher to India and Burma; Richard Hollinger reexamines the early history of the Bahá’í Faith in America.
An important addition to Bahá’í scholarship.
