"As an antidote to the complexities and challenges of modern life, award-winning author Philip Gulley offers the opportunity to participate in a world where the values of the Quaker way bring equity, peace, healing, and hope. The Quaker Way invites readers to encounter the defining commitments of the Religious Society of Friend, and shows how those ideals can be incorporated in personal and public life to bring renewal and eliminate the clutter that is keeping us from deeper spirituality. His audience isa new generation of seekers who may be disillusioned with religious institutions and strictures but yet are deeply interested in spiritual matters. In the end, Gulley's invitation isn't to a centuries old church, but to an honest, peaceful, and promisingway of life"-- Provided by publisher.

What a fascinating book. As a lifelong Catholic, I learned much about this (to me) a bit "under the radar" way of life. For example, I did not know that some Quakers are atheists. I especially appreciated the easy-to-remember acronym, SPICE, that summarizes core Quaker values: simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality. I have newfound great respect for those who can live this path. The concepts presented challenged me (in a good way). Nicely written!
