Reviews

'The Cambridge Companion to Quakerism is ... the most useful resource on all things Quaker in its breadth and multi-disciplinary approach. It is the most concise, yet comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and up-to-date guide to Quaker faith and practice in its diverse contemporary manifestations.' Carole Dale Spencer, Reading Religion
'This book provides a valuable introduction to Quakerism (the Religious Society of Friends) and its diverse contemporary manifestations ... A key strength of the book is its global focus, which extends to a geographically diverse range of contributors, representative of the reality that the majority of Quakers in the world today live in Africa and other non-North American, non-European areas. Also helpful is the volume's attention to theological diversity among Friends and to shared features that make Quakerism distinctive among the world's religious traditions.' J. H. Sniegocki, Choice
