George Fox and the Quakers

Author: Cecil Sharman
Publisher: Quaker Books
Though Fox's own Journal tells his life-story fully and vividly, some readers find it so detailed, and so quick to assume his reader's familiarity with situations, events and outlooks of his time that it is difficult to read or grasp it as a whole.

Product description
George Fox first gathered Friends more than three centuries ago by 'opening them to the way'; for our time also, his life has become part of his message. He took on the religious political establishments of his day in the name of purer Christianity and a juster social system. This led to a remarkably strenuous, varied and dangerous career. The story of Fox and the Quakers, arch-protesters in an age of protest 350 years ago, still deserves the attention today.
