The Unnecessary Conflict and other essays
by Ronald Ford
‘The harmony of religious belief with reason is a new vista which Bahá’u’lláh has opened for the soul of man.’ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
Six thought-provoking essays cutting through the ‘jargon jungle’ that permeates and distorts the current stand-off between those who believe in a God or Creator and those who reject such beliefs, in particular the increasingly popular ‘New Atheists’. The book addresses the mental struggle of many sincere seekers who are trying to rationalize their convictions in this scientific age, and highlights the urgent need for dialogue between religion and science.
The author draws on the writings of the Bahá’í Faith, and particularly of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, who in many of his writings and public speeches elaborated on the Bahá’í principle of harmony between religion and science and the necessity of investigating reality with an open mind.
