The talk will be discussing my paper “Bahá’u’lláh and the God of Avicenna” published in The Journal of Bahá’í Studies, and I will go over its primary arguments and themes. Namely, I will discuss how Bahá’u’lláh affirms the metaphysical principles underlying Avicenna’s argument for the existence of God, Avicenna’s deduction of divine attributes, the relation of God and the world, and the nature of His creative act.
