Asking Questions

Asking Questions Book Cover

by Bahiyyih Nakhjavani

Challenging questions about scholarship, priestcraft, fear, freedom, women and the law.


Do we have an innate desire to ask questions or is Interrogation something we need to learn? If questions are the means by which on stirs the passive mind and awakens the soul, how can they be asked so as to alert the mind to passionate inquiry rather than providing it with false choices?

Why do we sometimes fear questions? Or is it the answers that we fear? How can we guard against questions that coerce, that manipulate? Can questions freely asked tap the vast resources of spiritual, intellectual and emotional power?

Dr Nahkjavani challenges fundamentalist thinking by asking questions about:

* scholarship
* priestcraft
* fear
* freedom
* women
* the law

And about the nature of fundamentalism itself.
