Primitive Christianity Revived
William Penn's classic 1696 work, Primitive Christianity Revived, describes how the ways of the early Christian church as established by Jesus and his apostles had been restored "in the Faith and Practice of the People called Quakers." William Penn outlines in only a few dozen pages the beliefs and behaviors that define the Friends' way of life. The simplicity and precision of Penn's description is unsurpassed in the three centuries since it was first published, but seventeenth-century English vocabulary and grammar have obscured his message. In this new edition, Paul Buckley has translated Primitive Christianity Revived into modern English, revealing the straightforward clarity of Penn's reasoning for a new generation.
