In Christianity for Deepening and Dialogue we will explore major themes that form part of Christian belief and compare them with the Bahá’í Faith: Conceptions of God and the Trinity; Christian rites, Eucharist, and Baptism; Kingdom of God; Miracles; the Crucifixion; and the Resurrection.

We will begin with an introduction to the Bible and its organization and will also cover politics and religion. Using Bahá’í, Islamic, and academic perspectives, we will examine the themes in the Gospels’ original context and then explore them in their modern forms. We will be studying Christianity for the purposes of deepening and dialogue—that is, for understanding the basics of Christianity as a divinely revealed religion and for learning how to share the Bahá’í perspective with a variety of Christians in an informed and respectful manner.
