Product description

About the Author

Penn founded Pennsylvania as a "Holy Experiment" under Charles II. He was a well-known proponent of religious freedom and tolerance in England and parts of Europe, specifically as a Quaker. His convictions landed him in jail serveral times. He wrote No Cross, No Crown while imprisoned in the Tower of London. As is the case with most who carry the truth of the gospel so passionately, he spent much time in prison for what he believed.

William Penn is such a famous and influential person in early Quaker times (both in the UK and the USA) so I found this very interesting. The chapter on Quaker worship was of particular interest to me.
NOT suitable for a complete newcomer to the Quaker way, certainly, but gives some historical background which I was mainly looking for.
It also offered interpretations of quite a lot of the bible stories which I found very worthwhile.
I flicked quickly though many of the later sections with which I found no connection and little that seems to me true, but there were many quotes of famous people that were quite intriguing!

I'm Quaker myself. Great history/theology book! Penn was a pioneer among Quakers and founded the state of Pennsylvania which was later named after him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Founders knew God 3 Aug. 2013

I love to read about our founders and I felt William Penn had been given much light from God. America is missing this type of heart that was carried in our forefathers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Godly Mr. Penn 4 May 2005
By E. J. Ludwig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book about all the ways that man's greed, pride, love of luxury, and love of deference fly in the face of the Word of God and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Self-denial (the Cross) is for William Penn the way of Christ -- a position totally at odds, according to him, with the Christianity and society of his day (17th century), and even more so, it seems to me, with the culture and mores of today. Despite his debunkers, he remains a giant of American and British history, a man who risked all to bring his vision of Christ to Gt. Britain and later to the colonies. After reading this book, I was more proud that I was born and raised in Pennsylvania. He provides a detailed account of what it is to live the life of the Cross. Are we ready to accept the vision he provides? Can our lives be more Christ-like?

There are still some theological questions about whether Penn accepted the doctrine of the Trinity or the Divine Sonship of Jesus Christ. However, theology aside, we would have a much better society if we thoroughly digested this book and enacted the precepts taught therein. Don't you agree?
