KIRKUS REVIEW

Here rounded up for admiration and instruction of those devoted to the Quaker faith and those who revere it are the men and women who took their conscience and their religion to heart in a very true way. George Fox, was in a disrupted Cromwellian England, the first professor and minister of the new faith, the faith that required its followers to seek the God in themselves and others, to live their beliefs in uncompromising action, fighting peacefully for justice, brotherhood, liberty- the truths conscience and Christ set forth. He is followed by others...None were afraid to suffer for their faith, none compromised. After the founders came the keepers of the faith, which had taken hold in America and provided such Friends as Lucretia Mott. Down to the present day the Quakers have worked for peace, against slavery, for better education and prison conditions, carrying their services around the world. Their qualities and accomplishments are great, and this history of people who strived for a better way of life, while not completely clarifying Quaker beliefs, is an impressive one especially well suited for library and highschool use.
