About The Book
The book opens with lively vignettes of Conservative, Evangelical. Friends General Conference, and Friends United meetings that illuminate basic Quaker concepts and theology and reflect the group’s diversity in the wake of the sectarian splintering of the nineteenth century. Yet the book also examines commonalities among American Friends that demonstrate a fundamental unity within the religion: their commitments to worship, the ministry of all believers, decision making based on seeking spiritual consensus rather than voting, a simple lifestyle, and education. Thomas Hamm shows that Quaker culture encompasses a rich tradition of practice even as believers continue to debate a number of central questions: Is Quakerism necessarily Christian? Where should religious authority reside? Is the self sacred? How does one transmit faith to children? How do gender and sexuality shape religious belief and behavior? Hamm’s analysis of these debates reveals a vital religion that prizes both unity and diversity.
