This book is extremely helpful and a "must have" for anyone new to Quakerism or interested in studying the tradition. This is a book that one would like to keep as a reference book and study guide. I love how the author covers the history of Quakerism, all the way from George Fox to current times. I have been a Quaker for only a few years and this is the most interesting book I've read so far. It has helped me have a better knowledge of this beautiful tradition.

Scholarly study of Quaker history and the current status of Quakerism worldwide.

Very rough read. There are many books on Quakerism available and I will probably avoid buying books by this author for a long time. The layout of the book (semi chronological) with many unnecessary charts and graphs coupled with the bias made this a chore to read.

In 2009, I dated a Quaker, and I didn't understand a joke on a t-shirt he had in a Facebook photo. So, I started with the Wikipedia page. What I read had me (agnostic at the time) interested in trying out Quakerism. Next, I grabbed this book at the university library. I am so glad I did!

The book goes through chronologically from the beginning of Quakerism to the present day, explaining the changes that occurred as disagreements arose over time and formed different branches of Quakerism. It shows where different branches are out of balance versus early Quakers. That imbalance is why I went several years before becoming a member of the Religious Society of Friends. I wanted to be in balance, not on the fringes and felt it would be dishonest to apply for membership until then. The author is probably the foremost scholar on Quakerism today (and a Quaker himself), and I very much appreciate his historical and traditionalist perspective.

I've been recommending this book since 2009, and I finally picked up my own copy at British Quaker HQ this summer. Having access to the charts and aside boxes is great, and the list of figures & charts is helpful for use as a reference book after a read-through.

Although intrigued by three Quaker meetings in 2010, I was not convinced the Quaker way was my way. So I did what I usually do when confronted with a new subject--I turned to books. I did not find a lot of books on Quakerism in my local library, but somehow I connected with Pink Dandelion's little book. Actually, this is a big little book when one considers how well and comprehensively Dandelion handles his subject, for the book includes much of major consequence in Quakerism. I did not have to read far to realize this is the religion I had been searching for because Quakerism is not about outer religion, surface practice, or superficial experience. Rather, it's about deep inner religion and experience. My own spiritual experiences tied in nicely with Quaker experiences. The kind of Quakerism to which I'm drawn is not about churches, sermons, rituals, or creeds, etc. Rather, it's about God within us and the communion possible in the silence between us and God and between us and other similarly minded persons. In the silence of a Quaker meeting, we "meet" and commune with God and one another.
I am not a Quaker but I have been interested in Quaker Religion for many years. I have read several books on the subject, but this is the first one that made me understand Quakerism in all its aspects. Although it's been written by a scholar it's quite easy to read, and the included figures, tables and abstracts prove to be very helpful. In this book are succintly exposed the main Quaker related people, works, ideas, controversies and branches throughout the history, so you can fully understand the context. As a result, myths and wrong assumptions about Quakers become apparent. Tensions between theology and mysticism, orthodoxy and heterodoxy, or the relative importance conceded to inward or outward affairs, are all part of the history of Quakers, but it also is the social leadership of their numerous apostles and activists. The bibliographical references added at the end of the book are very useful in going deeper to specific authors or subjects. I recommend this book for those people who want to know what this religious movement is all about.
