Quaker simplicity and silent worship is closely related to ideals of peace and social improvement, and the aim of the Quaker life is 'to give people that state of inner peace where war, violence and injustice cannot exist.'
Pym's previous background in catholicism and buddhism help give the book depth and wisdom. Both established Quakers and those interested in learning more will find this book extremely valuable.
I love this book and have read large parts of it several times.
Having read Listening to the Light, I now see Friends (Quakers) and Quaker Worship in a different light. Suddenly, I understand things which I have so far spent quite a few years trying to comprehend.
It is a very simple presentation, very warm. I will definitely keep reading it again and again, and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in Quakerism.
This is the introduction to Quakerism I was hoping for when I purchased another book. The other turned out to be a good book, this is a much better introduction.
Really nice, easy read, but very informative. I love it. It also contains Advices and Queries, a core piece of Quaker text.
He identifies three strands in the book - the first ‘personal and even autobiographical’, the second ‘about Quakerism and about Quakers’, the third being something of a ‘how to...’ in that ‘it suggests ways in which you may incorporate ideas into your own life’.
The ‘about Quakers’ strand deals with principles and approaches rather than the nitty gritty of practicalities, but still manages to cover a lot of ground. He talks of meeting for worship as ‘the source from which everything else springs’, and strives to give some insight into ‘what Quakers have learned and experienced over the years’, touching on the idea of ‘that of God’, the implications of ‘the abolition of the laity’, and the importance of the testimonies, as well as processes such as meeting for worship for business, worship sharing,meetings for clearness, and weddings and funerals.Read more ›
Useful book to help touch a spiritual need if you can admit to having one!
