Fire and Gold
Quotations from the Bahá'í teachings on benefiting from tests and facing the challenges of life.
O Son of Being!
Busy not thyself with this world,
for with fire We test the gold,
and with gold We test Our servants.
Fire & Gold is a thoughtfully selected compilation of quotations from the Bahá'í scriptures and other Bahá'í writings on the purpose and source of the tests that may come to us and to our society, and how we can overcome them.
Brian Kurzius has delved deeply into the literature of the Bahá'í Faith, including sourcing works long out of print or difficult to come by, to find words that bring comfort, inner peace, and spiritual upliftment to those facing the many challenges of life.
