This is a real joy. A book, I think, to browse through, rather than go through cover to cover, and with all sorts of delights on every page. Wholeheartedly recommended - for Quaker and non-Quaker alike.
If you are interested in Quakers or just like to read some inspiring words I think you would like this book. Beatifully written. Geoffrey Durham has made what could be a rather heavy read into something interesting that could help anyone in their daily lives.
An excellent and easily accessible introduction to Quakers in the 21st century, the book gets to the heart of what brings many people to the society of friends which is (as the title indicates) through spiritual questing.
As a person interested in all things spiritual and one who is on a continuing journey of spiritual discovery, I have found myself being drawn towards the Quakers. This book is informative of the current thinking and practise of Quakers in the UK and gives a very broad historical perspective and position of the movement along with insight as to how and why it is what it is. I would also add that I now have a much clearer view and understanding of Quakers.
