Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book shows how the Quakers shaped the basic distinctive features of American life from the days of the founders and the colonies through the revolution and up to the civil rights movement. It also points out how Quaker values like freedom, equality, straightforwardness, and spirituality can be seen in modern day peace advocates.

Synopsis:

Nationally syndicated columnist David Yount shows how Quakers and the Society of Friends shaped the basic distinctive features of American life, from the days of the colonies, revolution and founders, to the civil rights movements of modern times: freedom, equality, community, straightforwardness, and spirituality. Quaker prep schools and colleges continue to guide future generations of mostly non-Quaker students. Quaker spirituality is the basis for much of contemporary Christian spirituality. Yount makes clear that America would not have become what it is without the profound influence of the Friends.
