Reviews

"From its radical beginnings in the English Civil War to its diverse, multi-ethnic global presence, this concise introduction may be the single best panorama of the Quaker world yet written. It’s destined to be a standard source in the field for both scholar and general reader."— Carole Dale Spencer, Portland Seminary of George Fox University, USA. Author of Holiness: The Soul of Quakerism."Quakerism: The Basics is an important work for anyone wanting to understand the essentials of Quakerism. In clear accessible prose, the Abbotts guide readers through Quakerism’s past and present revealing the incredible diversity within the Religious Society of Friends. Strongly foregrounding voices from the global south, this volume clearly introduces an often misunderstood religious group." — Robynne Rogers Healey, Trinity Western University, Canada.
