Right from the start, “the people called Quakers” recorded each other’s “dying sayings.” This book tells how, happening upon some of these by accident, a 21st century Friend learned of their speakers’ passion for equality and truth. Originally published at a time when religious dissent was fiercely discouraged, the accounts presented here give inspiration to anyone working for justice and peace in today’s world.

Author Jane Mace (God and Decision-Making: A Quaker Approach), an adult educator by profession, has a persistent curiosity in the to and fro of speech and writing.
