Some of the Goodwill thrift stores in my area have what are known as "bargain barns", sections of the store where items are sold at a rather low price so as to clearance them out.

At the local Goodwill, 90% of all religious material donated winds up right there. As such, about every other month I make off with a major haul.

Part of this month's haul?

"The Hidden Words: Selected Writings of Baha'u'llah". $0.50

I'm trying to figure out just who published this edition, but there are multiple groups referenced. I'm guessing that the date of publication was some time in 2002.

I was thinking "Selected Writings of Baha'u'llah" was a compilation of titles with "The Hidden Words" being one chapter...


but I could be wrong. how many total pages is it?


"The Hidden Words" alone is not very long, perhaps 50 pages.

Once, decades ago, bought a copy of The Dawnbreakers for two dollars in a US community thrift store in one of their Midwestern states. It was brand new and completely unmarked! Still have it, too.

Ironhold, have you read it yet?


Who was the publisher? That can tell us a little about where it came from.

Not yet; it's been a busy weekend.
