Product description
In exploring these questions, it becomes clear that they cannot be answered in isolation for they are linked to a whole complex of questions about Jesus, God and the nature of human living. So it vbecomes necessary to engage in theology. But for Quakers this must be from a distinctive Quaker standpoint which seeks to be both undogmatic and concerned with practical issues. Most of all it must be grounded in our corporate experince of God. Janet Scott attempts to begin this process. She explores what we may say about Jesus and about God, sets out one way in whihc Quakerism may be both Christian and Universalist, and points out areas needing further discussion.
