Some Quaker FAQs, for New & Curious Friends
Chuck Fager has been studying and writing about Quakers for almost forty years. When his granddaughter Amber told him that schoolmates had asked her about what Quakers believe, and how that differs from other Christian churches, she didn't know how to answer them. Chuck realized that she had not been taught about this faith. So he set out to provide answers to some of the FAQs that come up in such discussions. And he gathered almost fifty questions for this collection. The responses in this collection are concise, well-informed, and thought-provoking and reflect a progressive perspective. But because Quakers have no set creed, they are not "official." Chuck thinks of "Some Quaker FAQs" as the beginning of a project of "un-systematic theology."
