    The key to an enduring happiness is the knowledge of God. My talk will focus on this statement from Bahá'u'lláh in The Kitáb-i-Íqán:
    What "oppression" is greater than that which hath been recounted? What "oppression" is more grievous than that a soul seeking the truth, and wishing to attain unto the knowledge of God, should know not where to go for it and from whom to seek it? For opinions have sorely differed, and the ways unto the attainment of God have multiplied. (KI, 31.)
    Bahá'í Scriptures expand our knowledge of God a hundredfold. My most recent book uses this vast store of knowledge to respond to the most common questions people ask about God and the afterlife.
