First, a letter from the editor, Dr. Iraj Ayman:
Dear Friends,

We are in the process of preparing the programs for the Irfan Colloquium's sessions in 2007 to be held at Bosch Baha'i School, Acuto Center for Baha'I Studies and Louhelen Baha'i School. We would greatly value and be happy to have you making presentation/s at the sessions/s of your choice and very much appreciate hearing from you at your earliest convenience. Please be kind enough to responds to this message. The overall theme topic chosen for the Colloquia in 2007 is "Baha'I Faith and the Challenges facing Humankind.

2007 is the seventieth year of the beginning of the teaching plans in implementation of the provisions of the Tablets of Divine Plan and launching the First Seven Year Plan. Therefore analytical studies of specific aspects or provisions of those Tablets as well as backgrounds of such topics in the Writings of the Bab, Baha'u'llah Abdul-Baha and Shoghi Effendi will be most welcome. It is also suggested that we start a series of research presentations on topical treatment of specific subjects in the Kitáb-i-Bayán.

As you know `Irfán Colloquium offers a series of presentations of scholarly studies on fundamental principles of the Bahá’í belief system; Writings of the Central Figures of the Bahá’í Faith; and the interface of the Bahá’í Faith and current intellectual and religious trends in the world. It provides a unique opportunity to meet and associate with scholars and plan collaboration in the Bahá’í studies. Participants receive a set of the Irfan publications.

Looking forward to hearing from you and your proposals,
Sincerely, Iraj Ayman
