Beschreibung

Although relatively few in number-there are only a few hundred thousand members worldwide-the Religious Society of Friends has had an unusually strong impact. Originating in Great Britain in the 17th century, the denomination has since expanded to many other parts of the world while its spiritual influence has reached even further. Concepts such as the 'inward light' and 'friendly persuasion' are familiar well beyond their own circles and others have often heeded the Quakers' call for cooperation and peaceful resolution of problems as the wisest counsel.

Mary Ellen Chijioke is Director of the Hege Library at Guilford College in North Carolina and has served as curator of the Friends Historical Library at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, the academic center of "Hicksite" Quakerism.

Pressestimmen

...a handy paperback guide and supplement designed to further the understanding of all things Quaker. Reviews In Religion and Theology, Vol. 14, No. 1 (2007) ...the scope of the work covering as it seems to do the full range of Quakerism's manifestation, is amazing...an excellent work. Quaker Studies, March 2007 (vol 11, no 2) Offering a reference for Quakers and general readers interested in the faith, this reference focuses on the religion's history, scope, and modern diversity of theology and practice. Reference and Research Book News A chronology, a historical introduction and a dictionary of Friends, this book is essential for both personal and meeting libraries. From 'abolition' to 'Zaru, Jean', 'conservative Friends' to the 'pastoral movement', 'Friends United Meeting' to 'tithes', this reference book illuminates both 'Friendly' terminology as well as a Quaker perspective on more general religious terms and concepts.
