“Wouldst thou that the mind should not entrap thee?
Teach it the science of the love of God!”

Hakim Saná’í, Persian Sufi poet, died circa 1150 CE

The reader will find attached the bulk of my published and unpublished writings. To 2013, these writings include: books, academic articles, essays, poetry volumes, book reviews, newspaper articles, engaged responses, a short autobiography, appreciations, and a 1967 interview with Laura Dreyfus-Barney, the compiler of the Bahá’í philosophical theology volume by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Some Answered Questions. The material that has not yet been uploaded will be gradually added. The user will also find links to the books I have written. This website replaces the one I did myself, and should be considered the definitive version. If there is any discrepancy between the website version of a text and the printed version, the printed version should be considered definitive.

My aim is to explore and validate the truths of the Bahá’í Revelation, the youngest of the world’s independent religions, founded by the Persian Prophets, the Báb (1819-1850) and Bahá’u’lláh (1817-1892). I approach my task as an independent scholar who correlates apologetics and Religionswissenschaft (Science of Religion) to the Bahá’í sacred writings.

In my other voice as creative writer, whether through poetry or essays, I elucidate the experiences and truths of the human condition.
