Product description
By considering profound questions such as free wil and the place of life in the universe, Peter J Eccles casts an illuminating and engaging light on a key element of Quaker experience; "The quality of the experience when we come together in meeting for worship depends on each one of us. The Presence in the Midst is always with us, ready to sustain and support us. It calls on each of us to rise above our weakness and live out our true self." Peter Eccless studies and teaches mathematics at The University of Manchester. He is a former clerk to Meeting for Sufferings and to Yearly Meeting.
