Search for Values: Ethics in Bahá’í Thought

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. William Collins examines how Baha’i values apply to the dilemmas of a modern family. 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.
