Your source for inspiring Quaker insights
For more than 85 years, Pendle Hill has expanded understanding of Quaker life and witness through pamphlets and books. Each publication arises from the writer’s spiritual experience, religious concern, or special knowledge of an important contemporary theme. Every Pendle Hill pamphlet ever published since 1934, and almost every Pendle Hill book, is available for purchase from our physical bookstore or through our online store.
In addition to being insightful and well-written, these materials help Friends and other interested individuals live our lives as expressions of our faith, serve our values, and learn about the Quaker way past and present.
Pendle Hill Pamphlets
Where can you find brief, substantial writings by authors including Parker Palmer, Howard Thurman, Simone Weil, John Yungblut, Sandra Cronk, Fritz Eichenberg, Thomas Kelly, Paul Lacey, and Martin Buber? In the Pendle Hill Pamphlet series! Each of these authors has written at least one of the 475+ Pendle Hill pamphlets published to date.
Since its founding in 1930, Pendle Hill has been a center where Quaker faith is expressed in education – the education of adults for spiritually motivated service. Because spiritual experience is essential to Quakerism, Pendle Hill’s education is experiential at its core. The Pendle Hill pamphlets have been an integral part of this educational vision since 1934. The pamphlets are written from the personal experience, study, and insights of the authors, concerning spiritual life, faith, and witness.
Pendle Hill currently publishes six (6) pamphlets a year, each approximately 36 pages in length. Every pamphlet ever produced is available for purchase in our bookstore and online store. We are slowly reprinting some of our older, more popular titles that have gone out-of-print, so the plain gray covers will eventually be a thing of the past!
Receive each pamphlet as it is published by ordering a subscription. We offer a 20% discount when you buy 10 or more Pendle Hill pamphlets. Mixed titles are fine, but special pamphlet sets are NOT included (since they are already discounted). Wholesale orders and other inquiries should be made via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are you interested in submitting a manuscript for consideration as a possible Pendle Hill pamphlet? We welcome submissions from both new and longtime authors.
