John Woolman and the Affairs of Truth
Many pilgrims on spiritual journeys since the time of John Woolman (1720-1772) have been drawn toward the love and steadfast faith illuminating the pages of his Journal. This volume collects the body of Woolman's general writings (other than the Journal) so that the record will be made more complete as to his concerns and thoughts, his experiences and prophetic witness, "in the affairs of Truth." John Woolman knew and used the entire range of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, as well as biblical literature. He was a master of scripture and thus of how to "think and act biblically." He also knew and used in his texts the published works of his day on church history, Quaker theology and foundations, and the practices and economics of the slave trade to consider issues of international trade and globalization.
