Abstract: This paper takes its cue from Shoghi Effendi, who calls on Bahá’ís “to investigate and analyse the principles of the Faith and to correlate them with the modern aspects of philosophy and science.” He reinforces this point by saying the Cause needs more Bahá’í scholars, people with a deep grasp of the Teachings and their significance who can correlate its beliefs with current world problems.
