Walking In The Way Of Peace
Quaker Pacifism In The Seventeenth Century
BY MEREDITH BALDWIN-WEDDLE
A synthesis of intellectual and social history, Walking in the Way of Peace investigates the historic context, meaning, and expression of early Quaker pacifism in England and it's colonies. In a nuanced examination of pacifism, Weddle focuses on King Phillip's War, which forced New England Quaker, rulers and rules alike, to define the parameters of their peace testimony.
