Unity of Faith and Reason in Action: A Journey of Discovery

We live at a time when the foundations of belief and faith are shaken; when attachment to a materialistic way of life is almost universally prized and pursued; and when the anthems of compassion, care, and love are silenced by cries of self-interest, self-protection, and fear and hatred of 'others'. It is increasingly evident to those who are not seduced by the prevailing materialistic way of life, that materialism, like a cancerous malady, will eventually destroy the very civilization it has labored to create. Equally ominous is the rise of religious fundamentalism and militarism that has skewed the foundations of religion, misrepresented its fundamental objectives, and misapplied its considerable powers over the masses of humanity. It is evident that neither materialistic science nor unstudied religiosity will be able to correct the ills of an afflicted humanity. This book invites you to investigate issues of faith and reason, and material and spiritual from the unique perspectives of the unity-based teachings of the newest world religion--the Bahá'í Faith--and consider its profound implications for your personal, family, and community life.

The Violence-Free Society: A Gift for Our Children

Dr. Hossain B. Danesh offers a convincing explanation of the development of violence on the individual level, and cites anthropological and social studies that indicate how violence becomes part of the social structure. He applies the teachings of the Baha'i Faith and his own insights to the analysis of violence, and sketches the structure of a society functioning as an organic whole, responsive to man's inner nature, and in which individual understanding and social justice will eventually free mankind from the curse of violence.
