If you would like to find out more about Quakers, then here are some suggestions for further reading.
Quaker faith and practice is the core statement of the personal and corporate religious experience of Quakers in Britain. It contains writings by Quakers and others divided into sections which cover Quaker faith, action, testimonies, and reflections, as well as information about Quaker organisation and membership. It is a living, growing document which is revised in each generation. This regular revision enables Quaker faith and practice to reflect new developments in Quaker thought, and in our understanding of the world, our history, and our faith. It is available in various formats including digital.
