Traditional Quaker Christianity offers the reader a means to explore the time-honored faith of Friends (Quakers), describes how modern-day Conservative Friends put that faith into everyday practice, and outlines the reasons for many of Friends’ distinctive ways. The book’s purpose is to assist people seeking a living faith in Christ Jesus, Who is present and powerful in the midst of all His people.

Several questions at the end of each section help readers relate the material to their own lives and provide a starting point for discussion.< Less
