Product description
This creative theological exploration casts its net broadly over a wide range of continental and English 'Seekers' and catches those who ended up as members of the Friends of the Truth. The main subjects are the Seekers of the 1640s and their forebears, and the Friends who catalysed many Seeker themes into a dynamic, transformative movement. The book demonstrates the unique charisma of early Friends, their ability to hold opposing forces and ideas in creative tension, thus unleashing great spiritual energy. By comparison modern seekers, including many of today's Friends, are experiencing some of the same stages Gwyn identifies in those three centuries earlier, but without embodying the tension. Gwyn offers a (careful, cautious) way forward through honest dialogue with those with whom we differ, both within the Religious Society of Friends and in the larger, fragmented world.
