George Gorman had enormous influence during the forty years he worked for Quakers, acting as a comfortable catalyst between the small Quaker world and the fast-changing world of the 20th centry Britain. He transformed the public perception of Quaker from a narrow, even extinct, sect into a modern, lively spiritual path for all.
What was it that made Goerge Gorman unique?
These recollections of George, illustrated by photographs and some of his own writings, give a vivid answer to that question. They reveal his friendships, his delights and frustrations, and the quality of his speaking and his listening. He enabled people to "see their own path more clearly, to see it in terms of love rather than theology and so make it possible for them to tread their path in community."
