Tendering Presence

Tendering Presence

$ 21.00

John Woolman (1720-1772), a Quaker social reformer, called the Religious Society of Friends to stand in a corporate testimony against slavery and It's economic injustice. His call arose from his ongoing experience of the tendering presence of God and was exemplified by a faith and social witness that stands today to help heal the ills of war, poverty and environmental destruction. In this volume, nineteen scholars offer insightful essays on John Woolman's spirituality, his historical context, and his influence on contemporary issues of oppression, social change and education. This book was created as an honor to Phillips Moulton and Sterling Olmsted, two Woolman scholars, and an essay by each is included.
