Why should anyone be interested in a 'new' religion? Fourty some years ago, when I first became a Bahá'í, a lot of attention was paid to the social teachings of the Faith, because they were quite different from the norm then. Nowadays, many of these teachings, such as the need for equal education and opportunity for women, or the need for a common universal language, are considered obvious.
However, there are some specific theological differences between the Bahá'í Teachings and any of the previous chapters in what Bahá'ís believe is a single religious Book from a single God, with many chapters over time. This week's article from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com is a brief listing of those points.
