Product description
Some people who are new to Quakerism find that the word 'pacifism' can prove to be a real stumbling block as they try to move forward. We hope this book may be of use to them. The twelve Quakers who have written these pieces are of differing ages and backgrounds, and their views on pacifism differ too. We hope that readers will find the diversity stimulating, and that this book may help them as they form - and perhaps change - their own opinions.
