This audiobook is the new translation newly revised by a Committee at the Bahá´í World Centre, copyright 2014. Some Answered Questions includes a wide range of questions and answers compiled from a series of talks given by ´Abdu´l-Baha in 1904, 1905, and 1906 while at the supper table. The answers were given in reply to questions posed by visiting pilgrims, especially Laura Clifford Barney. Later these answers recorded in Persian were translated into French and English. They constitute a rich source of philosophical and spiritual wisdom with answers that often bypass conundrums or controversies which have limited debate for many centuries. Treating human subjects and human spiritual destiny as well as the nature of creation as inseparable, these answers altogether represent a vision which surpasses any given in the past and which will inform and balance the thought of much intellectual and spiritual life in the future. 1.
