Reviews

“The editors of this book have assembled a collection of material from recognized leaders from the Religious Society of Friends…. The chosen articles engage age-old questions from the Christian Quaker perspective, addressing issues of genuine religious experience, the search for faith and meaning, and the interplay of a living faith with the larger social context. This work should be a welcome addition to Friends and others in search of a helpful resource to accompany them on their journey.” – Jay Marshall
