Doug Gwyn provides a short guide to the history of Quaker beginnings, focusing on the aspects that enabled the first Friends to truly 'tear down the pillars of the world' as one version of the George Fox song has it. Gwyn applies his understanding of this dynamic to our current sense of impasse in the face of the world's ills, and comes up with some challenging answers.
