"Closer than your Life-Vein' by Henry J Weil. Short, pointed passages from someone who's really experienced the spiritual depth of the Faith.
Also Adib Taherzadeh's writings - deeply erudite, but not in the least out to impress you with himself - no ego in the writing. Apparently the man was also like that in life - he's a real hero in the Irish Baha'i community, and touched many lives.

I would say that I don't have a favorite, but that wouldn't be truthful. I guess I like The Hidden Words in particular because of how they're separated into parts and they're easy for me to memorize.

I have to heartily second any endorsement of Adib Taherzadeh's work - I have learned so much and understood so much more through reading them. Have you heard any of his talks on the human soul? I listened to it many times and it really helped me in sharing the Message with others. Lots of other great talks on this site as well. Check out this link: Baha'i audio talks

My favourite -- for eloquence, cogency and relevance today -- is Abdu'l-Baha's Sermon on the Art of Governance. In Persian (Resaleh-ye Siyasiyyeh) this is breathtaking.

I agree that Adib Taherzadeh's works are simply amazing. It is easy to read and enjoyable and conveys a knowledge and understanding that is so unique and priceless.

to revive this thread, as it is a fun one, I would add that lately I have just really really been enjoying the Paris Talks. It feels like you are right in the room listening, even being addressed directly.

Selections From the Writings of 'Abdu'l-Bahá. When I translated that book into my mother tongue, I felt as though that book changed my soul.

My first too books always are worth a read

1st - "God Loves Laughter" and then
2nd - "Thief in the Night".

Both by William Sears - "Thief in the Night" given in such a logical way!
