I am currently reading the second volume of Jan de Hartog's PEACEABLE KINGDOM. I loved the first volume. It really made the early Quakers very real. de Hartog is apparently a Margaret Fell fan. He seems to be crediting her with the organization that created Quakerism -- the reason George Fox's following didn't disappear into history as many seeker groups of that time did.
I've also done a lot of Pendle Hill Pamphlet reading. A recent PHP about resolving conflict in Meeting is a keeper-destined-to-be-classic: No. 399, MATTHEW 18: WISDOM FOR LIVING IN COMMUNITY. This one arrived right after our Meeting had a conflict workshop. About the same time, I picked up No. 205, Murphy's THE SOUND OF SILENCE about Tai Chi. Half way through Murphy's essay, there is an excellent discussion on conflict and its role in living creatively.
I also particularly liked No. 156, Howard Brinton's ETHICAL MYSTICISM, and No. 344, DANCING WITH GOD THROUGH THE STORM, Jennifer Elam's essay on mysticism and mental health.
Two of my all-time favorite Quaker books are Best's REBEL SAINTS and Byrd's QUAKER WAYS IN FOREIGN POLICY. And, oh yeah, I love Punshon's book on silence, and, and, and . . .
