FRIEND: The Story of George Fox and the Quakers
ISBN# LC 74-171865 Seabury hardcover
A biography–warts and all–of the charismatic founder of the Society of Friends aka the Quakers. George Fox was a man who believed that God was within every human being, and such was his conviction, he managed to offend a good portion of the English clergy and the powers that be. He was thrown into prison often for his energetic “speaking truth to power.” The first (and probably still the only) full biography for young adults of an important man of religion.
