“Since the death of Bill Taber in 2005, Lloyd Lee Wilson has become the representative figure of Conservative Quakerism in the U.S., and perhaps more widely. He is a member and former Clerk of North Carolina Yearly Meeting (Conservative), and his plain dress and traditional “thee” and “thou” address, among other items, make visible his commitment to this path.
He has also been a traveling minister for that body, and this is his second volume of essays, a collection of addresses given on various occasions over the past decade, under the guidance of and with the approval of that body. The book presents an opportunity to examine and assess his recent reading of this strand of Friends spirituality. Given his growing prominence, such an assessment is overdue.” —Chuck Fager, Quaker Theology
