This chapter explores key themes in Bahá’í theology, such as the absolute transcendence of God, the Essence of God, the names and attributes of God, the apophatic theology of the Bahá’í Faith, God’s unknowability, the revelation of God, emanation and manifestation, and the Manifestation of God. With the exploration of each theme, an aspect of the Bahá’í approach to the recognition of God is introduced. Considering the novel features of Bahá’í theology and its consequences for age-old questions of religion, the chapter concludes that Bahá’í theology revolutionizes the terminology, conceptual framework, scope, and implications of prophethood and revelation that existed in previous traditions.
