Hidden in Plain Sight: Quaker Women's Writings 1650-1700
Regular price $20.00
Illustrates the lives and theological perspectives of numerous women who joined what was, for its time, very much a radical sect. The writings are explained with a clarity that would allow even a beginner to Quakerism to understand very clearly the character of seventeenth century England. Theological reflection, the reflection of the presence of the sacred, is completely central throughout all these writings: this serves to ground them in a truly deep spirituality. The result is that we see exactly how the women felt they were being guided, by an inner and spiritual guide.
