In this very interesting, wise, clear, and helpful pamphlet, the author tells his spiritual journey: raised a Conservative Quaker in Iowa, fallen away and trained in analytical philosophy, through the study and practice of Zen Buddhism he found the treasures of Quakerism again. He found Fox and other early Quakers experiencing and explaining a spiritual path of death to self, and of awakening to rich spiritual Presence and guidance, through a demanding discipline and faithfulness. He describes the Quaker practice, laid out by early Quakers, in both modern and traditional terms. He writes beautifully of his own experience.
We can note in his account what seems to be quite common, that all too often Quakers do not teach and guide their young and newcomers in their spiritual discipline, so they must learn it elsewhere or stumble along on their own. ( )
