Simplicity in forms of worship, opposition to violence, concern for social injustice, and above all, a faith in the personal and corporate guidance of the Holy Spirit are characteristics of the spirituality of the people called Quakers. From their beginnings in seventeenth-century England until today, the Quakers have attempted to radically live out their beliefs in the presence of God's Spirit within their hearts.
In this book, Douglas V. Steere, the distinguished T. Wistar Brown Professor Emeritus from Haverford College, has assembled a comprehensive collection of Quaker writings. Included are selections from the journals of George Fox and John Woolman, Thomas Kelly's Testament of Devotion, and the works of Caroline Stephen and Rufus Jones.
