Publisher Comments:

Since its first publication in 1941, A Testament of Devotion, by the renowned Quaker teacher Thomas Kelly, has been universally embraced as a truly enduring spiritual classic. Plainspoken and deeply inspirational, it gathers together five compelling essays that urge us to center our lives on God's presence, to find quiet and stillness within modern life, and to discover the deeply satisfying and lasting peace of the inner spiritual journey. As relevant today as it was a half-century ago, A Testament of Devotion is the ideal companion to that highest of all human arts-the lifelong conversation between God and his creatures.

I have in mind something deeper than the simplification of our external programs, our absurdly crowded calendars of appointments through which so many pantingly and frantically gasp. These do become simplified in holy obedience, and the poise and peace we have been missing can really be found. But there is a deeper, an internal simplification of the whole of one's personality, stilled, tranquil, in childlike trust listening ever to Eternity's whisper, walking with a smile into the dark."

About the Author

Thomas R. Kelly (1893-1941) was a Quaker missionary, educator, speaker, writer, and scholar.

I have found this book truly refreshing and am glad that so many other people have been touched by Mr. Thomas Kelly's writing. I found this book with original cover from one of my mother's former collection of Christian literature. I am so glad to have read it and to imbue myself with its meanings. A Testament Of Devotion is a truly inspirational book.
