The Society of Friends has never had many members, scarcely more than 200,000 in the entire world…. But it is not the number that matters. What counts more is their inner strength and their deeds.” —Gunnar Jahn, chairman of the Nobel Committee in 1947, upon awarding the Religious Society of Friends with the Nobel Peace Prize

What is this inner strength? How does it help shape such effective leaders and organizations? This collection of essays from contemporary American Quaker leaders is a wealth of personal reflections on these questions. For study groups and newcomers to Quakerism, each section includes an introduction and queries for deeper exploration of listening, discernment, and action as led by the Spirit. Contributors include: Shan Cretin, Executive Secretary of American Friends Service Committee (AFSC); C. Wess Daniels, pastor of Camas Friends Church; Robin Mohr, Executive Secretary of Friends World Committee for Consultation, Section of the Americas (FWCC); and Joe Volk, former Executive Secretary of Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL).
