Tells the story of the movement's origins and describes how the distinctive Quaker practice of group worship in silence develop. The Quaker tradition integrates mystical insight with prophetic witness. Birkel 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 ethical stands taken by Quakers for peace, justice, equality, integrity and simplicity, and reflects on the contemporary relevance and meaning of a Christian tradition with a strong contemplative and activist dimension.
