Reviews
In this great new addition to the Quaker Quick series, Ruth Tod, lifelong Friend, is drawing our attention to the life and work of 17th century Quaker, Isaac Penington. She encourages us to look at his writings and thoughts meditatively and to draw them deeply into our own spiritual lives, now, in the 21st century. Ruth stresses how important it is for us to feel inspired and encouraged by Penington's beautiful words and ideas, and to see how they can enrich us now in practical as well as spiritual ways.
