1. As time propells us further from the heroic age of the Baha'i Faith and its early formative days, accounts such as this increase in their value to inspire and inform us of the spiritual grandeur of those early God-intoxicated lovers who carried the torch of Faith into the remotest reaches of the globe for their well-beloved 'Abdu'l-Baha and Shoghi Effendi. These are the words of such a one, called by the Master "'Abdu'l-Baha's lion" who would "roar across the Seven Seas." They give us an intimate glimpse of what it meant to be a Baha'i during those days when only a handful of Baha'is were spread across the face of a continent, laboring to erect the rudiments of an administrative order that could only be perceived as the embryo of the future Heavenly Kingdom of God upon earth. But such was their vision, their steadfastness that they strode forward, with joy and humor, in sickness or health, often in the face of intense criticism or personal danger.
This new edition of Not Every Sea Hath Pearls presents once again the exciting, often humorous, stories of Loulie's Baha'i life. (from the preface of Not Every Sea Hath Pearls)
