Product description
Founded in 1652, the Society of Friends (or Quakers, as they are known) is still influential in Britain today. But Quakers are often misunderstood, admired - for the wrong reasons - or ignored. Perhaps what is best known of them is their worship in silence and their refusal to bear arms. Just who are these people who were once accused of trying to overthrow the monarchy nd yet who not long agho won the Nobel Peace Prize? This book is an introduction to the Quakers in Britain. It tells something of their religious convictions, their form of worship and their political and social insights. The light that guided them at their origins in the mid-seventeenth century still shines amongst them today.
