Bahá'í Ethics in Light of Scripture: Volume 2

Virtues and Divine Commandments

George Ronald, Oxford 2009, Hard Cover, 432 pages, ISBN: 978-0-85398-518?1

Udo Schaefer’s Baha’i Ethics in Light of Scripture attempts to analyse the underlying structures and detect the interior architecture of the Bahá’í moral system and is a step towards developing a Baha’i moral theology. Finely argued and meticulously researched and annotated, Virtues and Divine Commandments, the second of two volumes, considers the structures of the moral order and its concrete values – the virtues, divine commandments and principles of social ethics, including justice, from a Baha’i perspective.

Includes an appendix on art and morality and correspondence with the Universal House of Justice on issues considered in the book.
