Overview

This is an accessible, clear and concise description of Quaker distinctives, beliefs and practices. "for more than sixty years, Friends have used the Guide to Quaker Practice to demystify Friends' customary procedures. Howard Brinton wrote the Guide assuming that somebody would improve on his work as the Religious Society of Friends grew and changed in the second half of the twentieth century. His Guide proved more durable than he anticipated. He described Quaker pra ctice by reference to theology, applying historical precedent insofar as it did not interfere with the clear description of contemporary practice." - Jared Taber, from the new foreword
