Edited by Anthony A. Lee
There is no issue more important to human survival in this nuclear
age than the issue of world peace. Similarly, there are no teachings
more central to the Bahá'í Faith than the teachings of the unity
of all peoples and the establishment of peace. What insights do
the Bahá'ís have to bring to bear on the current international situation?
Circle of Peace: Reflections on the Bahá'í Teachings is an attempt
to confront this question. Collected here are nine essays by various
Bahá'ís who offer their personal views based on their experiences
and their study of the Bahá'í writings. These are not official Bahá'í
positions, nor do they represent the thinking of all Bahá'ís. In
fact, the authors disagree among themselves on a number of points.
Together the essays represent only the beginning of open exchange
on the subject.
This book is the second in a series of volumes that seek to promote
the discussion of social issues with world vision and spiritual
perspective. It is an adult book: the reader is cautioned that one
of the essays includes strong language.
