This new edition of ‘The Memoirs of David Ferris’ is, first of all, a very readable account of an unusual spiritual journey. Martha Grundy places the story in sound historical perspective with a good and thorough introduction. Her study notes and queries provide an excellent bridge between the culture and thought world of the 18th century and our own time. Use of these notes and queries can be a good way to understand vital Quaker practices and concepts which can usually be learned only by wide reading or by years of ‘osmosis.’

This will be a useful book for spiritual formation groups interested in seeing how historic Quaker spiritual experience can be relevant to contemporary challenges and problems.” –William Taber, author and speaker on Quaker History and Spirituality
