“An anthology of Quaker women and men from over three centuries illuminates the common thread in Quaker heritage. Friends from various traditions speak of their encounters with Christ as the Inward Teacher, their interpretation of faith into action and their reliance on Divine guidance. Margery Post Abbott’s selections reveal wide acquaintance with Friends writings, both ancient and modern, and her introduction and editorial comments are both graceful and helpful.” —Margaret Hope Bacon
Includes selections by George Fox, Lucretia Mott, Elise Boulding, Isaac Penington, Howard Macy, Douglas Gwyn, and Rufus Jones.
