The Baha'i Writings tell us that persecution and trials will occur and intensify as the Cause emerges from obsecutiry to full recognition. A prime example of firmness in the Covenant amidst the fire of ordeals during our time is the Baha'i community of Iran, to which part of this book is dedicated.

Steadfastness in the Covenant discusses what the Covenant means to the present generation of young Baha'is, as well as the challenges in one's individual and community life in relation to the Covenant of Baha'u'llah.

Two chapters discuss issues related to scholarship and the Covenant. What is the meaning of scholarship in the Baha'i Dispensation? What do the Baha'i Writings say not only about acquiring knowledge but also about the individual virtues and character which would distinguish Baha'i academics and scholars in a world submerged in a competitive drive for entitlement and superiority? What is the roll of these souls in the defense of the Cause and extending our knowledge toward a deeper understanding and application of the Baha'i teachings in response to questions arising from current issues of society?

The concluding part of this book turns to the life of 'Abdu'l-Baha as the Perfect Exemplar and the Centre of the Covenant of the Baha'i Faith.
