About: It is my pleasure and privilege to come to this marvelous gathering and address the issue of the evolution of Bahá’í scholarship. I am thankful to the Association for Bahá’í Studies, and wholeheartedly hope this presentation will contribute to the study of the background, phases of progress, and future of Bahá’í scholarship. I also hope that my comments will shed light on the endeavors required of the younger generations of Bahá’í scholars, and their role in the development of such scholarship.
