Abstract

Book Reviews57 tween self or ego and God, and hence also between die present and future in history. The early Quakers saw "the Lamb's War" as God's Spirit overcoming evil to master the physical world. If we ask Keith and his opponents not about philosophical reality, but about the religious meaning of their own lifetimes, we find the Philadelphians moving out of dualistic ethics into scendent in his preoccupation with the past and future acts of Christ. Yet "realized eschatology," while Keith was both more static and more tran- Keith won young radicals as his followers: a lonely man. The tracts Frost includes show that when formulating Quaker beliefs against Lodowick, Keith could be an excellent summarizer of Quaker thought in that decade; when defensive about his ideas of transmigration, as a neat intellectual answer to the problem of how non-Christians can be saved, he could begin to suggest two levels of belief. The documents of change and counter-change within Philadelphia Monthly and Yearly Meet- ings are all here, including the summations against Keith of Samuel Jennings work with. Daniel Leeds, nor Keith's rejection by London Yearly Meeting, nor the tracts he afterwards poured out against Friends after
