EVOLUTION AND BAHÁ'Í BELIEF 'Abdu'l-Bahá's Response to Nineteenth-Century Darwinism

Studies in the Bábí and Bahá'í Religions series, Volume Twelve, edited by Keven Brown with essays by Keven Brown and Eberhart von Kitzing.

This 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. 

     Keven Brown's essay investigates the religious controversy that has surrounded the subject of evolution, both within Christianity and within Islam, during 'Abdu'l-Bahá's time.  He provides a valuable summary of the views of those the Master called "the philosophers of the East."

     Then, from the perspective of modern science, Eberhard von Kitzing discusses the impact of evoution on the study of biology and suggests that 'Abdu'l-Bahá's teachings have been widely misunderstood.

     This book will certainly change and redirect discussion on evolution in the Bahá'í community.
