    Helpful book for those new to Quaking.

  • By T. Gee on 11 January 2005

    In line with quaker philosophy - Quaker Faith and Practice (QFP) does not outline rules that all Quakers must follow.Essentially the merging of 2 books though, the first part tells of the way quakers have decided to conduct their affairs - often fascinating to non-quakers. The democracy of the society for example is emphasised by their way of getting married - not by a minister but by everybody present. Similarly quaker business method decides everything by consensus rather than voting.The second, and main part consists of writings which were again democratically decided on. Inspirational and thought provoking, and wonderfully written ideas by Quakers to be considered, although not necissarily to be followed word to word.Subjects range through Peace, truth, simplicity and equality in a variety of styles, approaches and times of writing. A beautiful book for readers of any faith or none. recommended
