Some Answered Questions consists of a series of questions that Laura Clifford Barney asked `Abdu'l-Bahá over lunch in Acre between 1904 and 1906. The answers were recorded in Persian. `Abdu'l-Bahá reviewed, modified, and approved them, thereby converting pilgrim's notes into authoritative Bahá’í text. Barney herself undertook the task of translating them into English. The resulting classic Bahá’í text appeared in 1908. Limitations in the translation have been a concern for some time, as Barney was not fully conversant with philosophical terminology. The translation, newly revised by a committee at the Bahá’í World Center, resolves many difficulties and brings the authoritative interpretations of `Abdu'l-Bahá to an English-speaking audience with new clarity and precision.
