Religion and Science in the Globalized World explores contemporary trends in religion, science, and globalization from a Baha’i perspective. It is divided into two parts. The first part is devoted to Baha’i approaches to various aspects of globalization. It includes the following chapters: “Global Constitutionalism” by Graham Hassall; “Globalization—The Tangible Expression of Humanity’s Journey Towards Unity” by Sovaida Ma’ani Ewing; “Building a Just and Sustainable Global Food System: Some Guiding Principles” by Paul Hanley; “How Can We All Get Along?—A Baha’i Perspective on Globalization” by Harold Rosen; and “Globalization Requires a Baha’i Foundation” by Hooshmand Badee.

The book’s second part focuses on different issues within the domains of natural and social sciences. The chapters included are as follows: “A Baha’i View of Human Rights” by Peter Smith; “Prophetic Revelation and Sociocultural Evolution: Some Scientific Perspectives” by Harry P.Massoth and Marilu Jeno; “Plato, Modern Physics, and Bahá’u’lláh” by Vahid Ranjbar; “Iterative Theology: Progressive Revelation as the String Theory of Religious Studies” by Andres Elvira Espinoza; and “The Issue of Self-Identity in Transhumanism and the Baha’i Writings” by Mikhail Sergeev. The volume ends with two chronologies of articles and books numerous Baha’i authors wrote on globalization and science from the second half of the twentieth century up to the present day.
