QuakerBooks moves to Colorado
As we do each year, we will be moving our books and computers to the week long FGC Gathering - this year its in Greeley Colorado from June 29th to July 6th..
Sadly this will impact our mail and web order service.
We will be mostly out of service June 21-30. We will fill internet orders
Having trouble finding a book?
We expect to improve our webpage soon, with easier search tools. But in the meantime, here are some tips:
Searching by name or title? The brown “search” link is in the upper left corner, under the blue FGC logo. It leads to two search options (Google-based and our own). If you don’t find the book you are looking for, try using fewer words. It is often most effective when using just one or two words.
Searching by category? The gray “browsing” box in the left hand column includes a “category” link. Click it and you will get a drop down menu of categories. Click on any one of them, and you will get another drop down menu of subcategories, as well as a display of two or three featured titles in that category. When you click on the subcategory, you will get a full list of our stock in that particular subcategory.
The gray “browsing box” in the left column also lets you go through book titles alphabetically. It does not work as well in searching for authors. Only authors with multiple titles are included, and if books are published under different variations of the author’s name, the list may not be complete. We recommend using the “search” link when looking for a particular author.
We regret that our search functions are so complicated as to need instructions. We cannot fix the problems on our current website, but are working to introduce improvements that will make searching easier. Meanwhile, please call us is you can’t find the book you want. We are open 10–4 Eastern time, Monday–Thursday: 800-966-4556.

We received J. Brent Bill’s newest publication, Awaken Your Senses, at QuakerBooks a few months ago and were impressed by the engaging yet simple sensory-oriented exercises within. As the book goes into a second printing to meet continuing reader demand, we jumped at the chance to interview Brent about the process behind creating this spiritual guide with co-author Beth Booram and about his own personal methods for keeping in touch with the Divine.
Brent, a recorded minister in the Religious Society of Friends, lives in Mooresville, Indiana, where he is the executive vice president of the Indianapolis Center for Congregations in Indiana. He has been a local church pastor in Indiana and Ohio, as well as an adjunct professor at Earlham School of Religion in Indiana. He has written numerous books, short stories, and magazine articles. You can check out some of our other favorite publications by J. Brent Bill here:
