The Quakers - A Very Short Introduction
BY BEN PINK-DANDELION
This little book is the latest one volume introduction to Quakerism. Written by Pink Dandelion, Quaker Studies teacher at Woodbrooke, this text presents an overview of Quaker identity, history, worship, theology, belief and ecumenism. Dandelion also offers a concluding chapter on the future of Quakerism and presents a chart o n three branches that he identifies: evangelical, conservative and liberal. Dandelion's approach offers a welcome addition to introductory texts, though not all will agree with the conclusions and characterizations that he asserts.
