"Hope and Witness in Dangerous Times" book cover

Brent Bill’s latest book is published by Christian Alternative, August 2021.

Join Quaker author Brent Bill as he shares from his new book, Hope and Witness in Dangerous Times: Lessons from the Quakers on Blending Faith, Daily Life, and Activism. Brent invites us to consider how our personal and communal faith practices bring us engagement with the needs of this world. This includes being active in promoting those values which align with our understanding of the gospel and standing against injustice, oppression, and evil inflicted on any of God’s children. Such activism, rooted in deep spirituality, may include being what Quaker civil rights activist Bayard Rustin called “angelic troublemakers.”


Brent Bill, a member of Spirituality & Practice’s “Living Spiritual Teachers Project,” is a life-long Quaker who has published more than 20 books, including Life Lessons from a Bad Quaker: A Humble Stumble Toward Simplicity and Grace; Sacred Compass: The Way of Spiritual Discernment, and Holy Silence: The Gift of Quaker Spirituality. Brent is also a photographer, retreat leader, and writing coach. He lives on Ploughshares Farm in Indiana.
