Value of the Course on How to Study the Bahá’í Writings

Chris Stearns of Greensboro, North Carolina, gained many benefits from the course How to Study the Baha’i Writings:

Chris Stearns[In the course on How to Study the Baha’i Writings] I learned a new method and approach to reading the scripture using the nine windows. I learned unique aspects of the words from each of these lenses.

I started this course wondering if using a more analytical approach might somehow take away from the mystical aspects of reading scripture. I think I found that viewing the words through different lenses actually added to the depth in my reading.

I learned to become more disciplined in my reading and will, hopefully, be able to keep this discipline.

This course was a reminder to continue my attempt to daily read the words. It also motivates me to try and better follow the path that has been provided by Baha’u’llah and exemplified by `Abdu’l-Baha.
