What is the experience at the heart of Quaker faith, and how can we speak of it in a “post-Christian” age? Can we be faithful to our personal experience of the numinous while also honoring the living tradition of Quakerism? Do we recognize that Friends are finders as well as seekers? A Faith to Call Our Own provides fresh insights on early Friends and meeting for worship today, through a striking personal journey from a nominally Christian upbringing into feminism, therapy and “green” spirituality, arriving at a re-visioning of Quaker faith for this time.

Alex Wildwood’s 1999 Swarthmore Lecture inquires into the experience at the heart of Quaker faith. Whatever your spiritual experience or religious understanding, you should find something here to challenge and excite you.
