Reviews

Praise for Living the Quaker Way "Anybody who has ever thought that the Quakers invented oatmeal will learn differently from Living the Quaker Way by Indiana pastor and highly readable author Philip Gulley. He describes the values of the Quaker way: simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality. Gulley is published by the new Random House imprint Convergent, which aims at people in the growing ranks of the spiritually curious but religiously unaffiliated."
--Publishers Weekly Top 10 in Religion, Fall 2013 "Ever since I 'discovered' Quakerism, I've wondered why Quakers are so quiet about their core values--simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality--in a world that so clearly needs them. So I was thrilled to find this book by Phil Gulley, a great Quaker writer, aimed at making those values more accessible. Gulley makes no effort to convince the reader to become a Quaker. He simply says, 'If you've been looking for ways to live out these values, here's what Quakers have learned over three and a half centuries of dedicated experimentation.' His book is a treasure trove of
practical wisdom about what it means to bear witness to our hope for a better world."
--Parker Palmer, author of Healing the Heart of Democracy, Let Your Life Speak, and The Courage to Teach "Living the Quaker Way is not only refreshing and inspiring, it is challenging in all the right ways. Even though I am not a Quaker, their core values challenge my real life as well as the life of the faith community that I pastor. Filled with honest stories, deep wisdom, and realistic practices, Living the Quaker Way will leave you not only longing to live differently but also with practical ways to do just that."
--Kathy Escobar, co-pastor of The Refuge, faith blogger, and author of Down We Go: Living Into the Wild Ways of Jesus "This is nothing less than the gospel itself. Quakers have always had the ability to simplify and get to the point, and here it is! I am most happy to add my very positive endorsement to this excellent, clear, and much-needed
book."
--Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico Praise for Phil Gulley

"Philip Gulley separates wheat from chaff, experience from explanation, and purpose from function in this book. He calls the Jesus message into a new vision--one that has both power and integrity."
--John Shelby Spong, former bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark and author of The Sins of Scripture "No one raises provocative questions about Christianity more kindly than Philip Gulley."
--Diana Butler Bass, author of Christianity After Religion and A People's History of Christianity

"In our ever changing world, Gulley's book is much needed. An important book for any person of faith."
--Archbishop Desmond Tutu

"The verve and clarity of Gulley's writing underscore the welcome nature of his message to many thoughtful unchurched or alienated Christians."
--Library Journal
