KIRKUS REVIEW

One of the few Americans whose works are included in the series of World Devotional classics, John Woolman deserves to be much better known outside of his own Quaker circle where he is properly revered as a saint. Woolman is significant in that religion was for him at once an inner experience and a concern for social righteousness. Indeed Dean Willard L. Sperry is quoted as attributing the birth of a social conscience in America to the day when John Woolman first publicly denounced Negro slavery. The journal itself is beautifully and simply written, the revelation of a truly great soul.
