To Be Broken and Tender

A Quaker Theology for Today
Western Friend


Quaker historian Margery Post Abbott weaves together a brave and beautiful personal narrative with Quaker history and theological reflection in response to questions and struggles about belief, language, social issues and other deeply felt concerns that unsettle and divide our meetings and the wider Religious Society of Friends. A study guide assists readers in their own discernment around challenging issues such as care for the environment, our personal relationships to God and Christianity, and what role Friends have in making the world right.
