Ask not what Quakers say about Christ, what do you say? A free and mysterious Christ was always at the centre of Quaker faith and practice. George Fox declared that the Christ within will teach his people himself.
We live in exciting times. After centuries of Christendom's affirmations that Jesus is the answer he is released at last to be the question again. Jesus has escaped the gilded cage of formal religion and is free to be subversive. When Quakers first broke away from the established church in Britain, there was a historic moment when it became possible to draw on experience and to make faith anew. We are again at that place, as this booklet shows.
'But who do you say that I am?' is an overview of various perspectives on Christ among Quakers today - Foundationist, Conservative, Ecumenical, Interfaith, Universalist and Non-Theist. Their understanding of 'The Banished Host' differs markedly and the author tells of his. Then twelve of the Kindlers team speak of theirs. This booklet touches much that is now unspoken in Quakerism to provoke response, especially in study groups.
