Quaker Library addition May 30, 2005
This collection of writings is a great addition for your library or reading list -- whether or not you are a Friend, you'll find a collection of thought provoking writings with an interesting view.
This book has both historical and philosophical views. Though much has changed in the world, and in the opinions of 'modern' Quakers, the core beliefs remain the same -- those who are new to Quakerism, those considering it or those just interested in another view will find this book of help.
Quaker wisdom Aug 11, 2000
The Quakers are known for their deeply personal approach to spirituality. The writings of this volume convey just that. This is an absolutely beautiful collection of reflective writings by men and woman who found the Sacred within them. The anthology begins with selections from the "Journal" and the letters of George Fox (1624-1691), the figure around whom the original Quaker movement crystallized. This anthology includes some selections from the laudatory preface to Fox's "Journal", written by none other than William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania. The anthology then includes the works of other Quakers from the 16th to the 20th centuries. One of the surprising gems of the book are the writings of Thomas Kelly (1893-1941), an American mystic whose life and work are too little appreciated. Kelly's writings radiate with the power of his mystical experience. Overall, this is a profoundly inspirational collection.
