    1. I wanted to find out more about exactly what Quakers are and what they believe. This little book mostly does that and in a nice, conversational style. Very pragmatic in its approach.

The author states that there really isn't a core theology, but also makes numerous references to Quaker values and lifestyle and these are not clearly defined. Very helpful overall thou [...]

    2. This is an approachable introduction to Quakerism that, I feel, has been supplanted by "Being a Quaker" by Geoffrey Durham which is a more complete and modern approach.
