Regular price $24.95 $0.00

Seeking Peace: The Quakers is an exploration of one of the longest and most influential non-violent resistance movements in history. For 365 years, from 1652 to 2017, the Quakers have been both pacifists and activists, expressing their unique religious beliefs through concrete actions. By opposing all forms of violence and working for peaceful change, this little group, also called Friends or Religious Society of Friends, has consistently dedicated itself to altruistic service. Heather Kirk takes the long and varied history and makes it easy to read. Enjoy the brief biographies, "family-tree tales," jokes, quotes, geographies, and almost 100 illustrations.
