Like Barclay’s Apology of 1676, this is a substantial work on Quaker theology, yet it is written for the general reader. Quakerism: A Theology for Our Time elucidates the Quaker theology of the inward Light, as found in Barclay and in George Fox. In their theology, the primary authority is the power within all people that can transform them into loving, compassionate, and peaceful people. Modern Biblical criticism and the discoveries of science enhance the original Quakerism and render it uniquely suited to our time.
