Wil Cooper – Quaker theologian, teacher, and author – sets forth the theology and faith of the “plain people” of Quakerdom. His personal story brings that theology to life in an intimate way and gives us a glimpse of day-to-day life of Middleton, Ohio Conservative Friends in the early 1900s. You will delight in this story of a Quaker culture that has wisdom to offer Friends today and its impact on the life of Wilmer Cooper, founding dean of the Earlham School of Religion and author of A Living Faith: An Historical and Comparative Study of Quaker Beliefs.

Growing Up Plain is published by FUP in cooperation with Pendle Hill Publications.
