Publisher Synopsis 'This book offers non-Quaker readers a way to assess Friends today and to understand the variations in belief and practice, and will be useful to Quakers in . This book is a companion volume to 'Celebrating the Quaker Way' and offers explanation on Quaker practice in Britain. Written as part of the author's ongoing ministry, it draws on his experience of Quakerism and includes extracts from Friends.

If you want a good academic book, "Introduction to Quakerism" by Pink Dandelion is good or "The Quakers in America" is good for an overview of Quaker history in America. You'll learn fun Quaker facts like lots (and maybe a majority) of Quakers live in Kenya. For the Quaker life, my favorite book is "A Testament to Devotion" by Thomas Kelly.
