"This is that which hath descended from the realm of glory,...revealed unto the prophets of old. We have taken the inner essence thereof and clothed it in the garment of brevity..." --Baha'u'llah

"The Hidden Words is a Treasury of Divine Mysteries." -'Abdu'l-Baha

A collection of lyrical, gem-like verses of scripture that convey timeless spiritual wisdom "clothed in the garment of brevity," The Hidden Words is one of the most important and cherished scriptural works of the Baha'i Faith.

Revealed by Baha'u'llah, the founder of the religion, the verses are a perfect guidebook to walking a spiritual path and drawing closer to God. They address themes such as turning to God, humility, detachment, and love, to name but a few. These verses are among Baha'u'llah's earliest and best known works, having been translated into more than seventy languages and read by millions worldwide. This edition will offer many readers their first introduction to the vast collection of Baha'i scripture.

My go-to book of Baha'i Scripture...
...when I need a memorably brief & profoundly deep quotation on some subject. No wonder it's sometimes called the "table of contents" of everything Baha'u'llah revealed. 

I've memorized & repeated (even sung) more of the verses in this book than in any other Scriptural volume of any Faith. I appreciate the juxtaposition of straightforward & pragmatic Arabic verses & metaphorical & poetic Persian verses.

I have 2 companion volumes that make this book even more useful. One is a concordance that helps me find a verse when I only remember part of it, or even when I only know what subject I'd like to find verses on. This is invaluable when I'm looking for verse(s) to share with English-speaking family & friends. The other volume is a Spanish translation - Las Palabras Ocultas - that helps me, once I've found an English verse, to easily find the corresponding verse to share with Spanish-speakers.

If you want or can afford only 1 little book, this is it. I believe you won't be disappointed
