Thank you for your kind words. I personally find the Wilmette Institute courses among the best academic resources currently available for the Baha'i community. As a mentor for the Institute I've read work from over 200 students, and am continually impressed by the diversity of approaches students bring to the courses. Some want just organized deepening on the Faith, others take on full-blown academic research projects. One of the great things about the courses is that they can be tailored for any number of different approaches; though we provide detailed assignments and study styles for those wanting suggestions, still each student is encouraged to come up with his/her own types of projects and methodologies.
I encourage anyone interested to consult the website (click on the link below). The three courses coming up immediately are on the Kitab-i-Iqan, Buddhism for Dialogue and Deepening, and soon the Revelation of Baha'u'llah 1863-68. And, of course, applications are still being accepted for the 4-year Spiritual Foundations course.
