New Perspectives on a Bahá'í Theology: Studies in the Bábí and Bahá'í Religions,
Volume Eight

Revisioning the Sacred

Edited by Jack McLean

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

Revisioning the Sacred provides seven scholars with an opportunity to offer their views on some current issues in Bahá'í theology. For example, Dann May discusses some implications of the Bahá'í principle of religious unity, and Stephen Lambden writes on the historical background of Bahá'í teachings about God. Each essay in the book is argued thoroughly and is the product of scholarly research. Since the Bahá'í Faith has no clergy, the opinions of the authors are only their own. Of course, they are not intended as authoritative statements of Bahá'í belief. Yet the insights that these scholars bring to bear will impel the reader to a closer, more prayerful, reflection on the Bahá'í scriptures.

This is a pioneering work of Bahá'í scholarship and a must-have for all serious students of the Bahá'í Faith.
