This book thoroughly discusses the early history of Orthodox Friends in the United States and in the process gives an explanation of the general American religious environment(s) of the time. It helps a person to see why most Orthodox Friends in modern times are so similar to other Christian groups. Details and footnotes are everywhere. Many of the movements and thought patterns are discussed, as well as the people who pioneered them, such as Rufus M. Jones, Joel Bean, Joseph John Gurney, and others.
