Now is the time for the lovers of God to raise high the banners of unity, to intone, in the assemblages of the world, the verses of friendship and love and to demonstrate to all that the grace of God is one. — ‘Abdu’l-Bahá


EVOLUTION and BAHÁ'Í BELIEF: 'Abdu'l-Bahá's Response to Nineteenth-Century Darwinism, edited by Keven Brown, (Studies in the Bábí and Bahá'í Religions, Vol. 12) is the first and only serious, academic treatment of the subject of evolution in the teachings of the Bahá'í Faith. The authors provide an exhaustive discussion of the historical context of 'Abdu'l-Bahá's remarks on and objections to the Darwinian theories of his time. They argue that his remarks have been misunderstood and draw their own surprising conclusions. Click here to read more and to place an order!

SYMBOL AND SECRET: Qur'an Commentary in Bahá'u'lláh's Kitáb-i Íqán by Christopher Buck (Studies in the Bábí and Bahá'í Religions, Vol. 7) is the first full volume in English ever devoted to a study of the Kitáb-i Íqán, a book designated by the Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith as "foremost among the priceless treasures cast forth from the billowing ocean of Bahá'u'lláh's Revelation."

Christopher Buck, a Bahá'í scholar of Islamic Studies, brings his considerable talents to bear on Bahá'u'lláh's explanations of the symbolic language to be found in the Qur'an and in the Gospels. Through the power of this explanation, Bahá'u'lláh creates new meanings for these verses and lays the foundation for a new religion. Click here to read more and to place
