At the heart of every new movement is an idea. The idea may not be clearly defined, but the idea is there, seeking embodiment, first in the spoken or written word and finally in the lives and actions of men. Part of the idea motivating the experiment of Pendle Hill, the Quaker center for study and contemplation, was publishing. In addition to pamphlets, which aim to be tracts for our times, covering the general fields of religion, literature, social problems, and world affairs, Pendle Hill publishes an occasional book, such as the present one.
