Walter R. Williams presents a picture of the courage, faith, devotion, and sacrifice that have been displayed throughout the history of Quakerism. Biographical sketches of Quaker leaders challenge the reader to Christian integrity and selfless service. The principles of Quakerism and its influence on society are evident in this carefully researched history of the movement. Paul Anderson, professor at George Fox University, has written an epilogue adding major developments that have taken place within Quakerism since this book was first published in 1962. Anderson also examines issues confronting Quakers entering the twenty-first century.
