Eloquent description of the author's faith and practice as a Christian Quaker. ( )
  FriendshipFLibrary | Nov 14, 2015 |
In this pamphlet, Punshon posits a crisis of identity for unprogrammed Quakerism, between universalism and Quaker Christianity. Punshon argues that Quakers must be Christian because Christian doctrine is the Truth, and also early Quakers were Christians. He argues doctrine, rather than helps us open to the guidance of the Spirit. There are interesting points here, but in a way, it shows why the Quakers eschewed doctrinal debate and argument; these lead away form the experience of the Presence rather than lead to it. More than a passionate defense of Quakerism as Christian, it feels not only argumentative, but aggressive at times. While he posits his definition of universalism, he does not attempt a balanced presentation of both points of view. ( )
