Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0913408913, Paperback)"A balanced, thorough account of a seventeenth-century figure, who has amazing relevance for our time. Gwyn's analysis shows in a convincing manner that George Fox's type of apocalyptic spiritualism forms a healthy antidote to the apocalyptic chilasm of our day."

Gwyn emphasizes the apocalyptic perspective behind George Fox's declaration that Christ has come to teach his people himself and describes how it affected Fox's view of preaching, worship, and Church order. This work helps explain the urgency of the message that sparked early Friends.
