The Quaker spiritual tradition integrates mystical insight with prophetic witness. Michael Burkle tells the story of the movement's origins, describes how the distinctive Quaker practice of group worship in silence developed, and explains how "collective discernment" is used in decision – making. He explores the historical development of the "testimonies", the ethical stance taken by Quakers for peace, justice, equality, integrity and simplicity, and he reflects on the contemporary relevance and meaning of a Christian tradition with a strong contemplative and activist dimension.

I can't believe I didn't write a review of this book! I will have to reread! But as I recall, I thought it to be very well written and covered more than one "type" of Quaker. ( )
