By David Johnson. san Francisco: inner Light Books, 2013. 80 pp. Notes. Cloth, $20.00; paper, $12.50; eBook, $10. David Johnson's book is a very useful contribution, particularly for Friends and others seeking to dig deeper in their prayer life and experience a more fruitful meeting for worship. Johnson, an australian Friend, garners a large selection of spiritual counsel and wisdom from Friends through the centuries, from George Fox and elizabeth Bathurst to thomas kelly and sandra Cronk. He also includes relevant biblical texts, Christian mystics, and convergent Buddhist and Hindu teachings. But the bulk of his sources are from first and second generation Friends, whose personal breakthroughs and guidance to bereft seekers have particular resonance today. Modern Friends are remarkably unaware of these resources from our own tradition. this book will help make important connections for those who take time to read and absorb its many vital points. Johnson has many good excerpts to share and the book risks repetitiveness. But since the counter-intuitive insights of Quaker spirituality are easy to miss, it is useful to hear the same basic truths restated by different authors using various figures of speech. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quaker History Friends Historical Association
