We explore Baha’i philosophy and metaphysics with Dr. Stephen Lambden, a leading scholar of Abrahamic religious texts, especially those of the Baha’i Faith. He has special interest in the Bible and the Qur'an and their relationship to Babi and Baha'i Arabic and Persian primary scriptural texts and doctrinal teachings.

Dr. Stephen Lambden received his PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne in 2002 where he submitted a thesis about Islamo-biblica and the emergence of the Babi-Baha'i Interpretation of the Bible. He has specialized in Abrahamic religious texts and Semitic languages.

The Global Philosophy of Religion Project aims to make the philosophy of religion a truly global field by promoting the scholarly work of researchers from underrepresented regions and religious traditions. It is led by Professor Yujin Nagasawa and hosted by the University of Birmingham. This interview was conducted by Robert Lawrence Kuhn, host of Closer To Truth.

This project was made possible in part through the support of a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
