This course on Bahá’í theology (the study of God and creation and of the relationship between them) provides an in-depth study of many of the fundamental spiritual teachings of the Bahá’í Faith. The units are organized around a series of questions we all ask from time to time: 

Who am I? (what is human nature) 

How do I know? (epistemology, or the study of the nature and grounds of knowledge)

Whom can I trust to guide me? (the nature of Manifestations of God and their revelations)

What is the structure of reality? (ontology, or the study of the nature and relations of being)

Where do I come from? (creation and evolution)

Where are we going? (an ever-advancing species and out eternal souls) 

What is expected of us? (our religious lives)

What is freedom and what are the consequences? (free will, reward, punishment)

What difference does it make? (theology in action)
