The unequal world we inhabit : Quaker responses to terrorism and fundamentalism by Paul A Lacey( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are all terrorists religious fundamentalists? How can pacifists respond to devastating violence? These and other challenging questions are at the heart of Paul Lacey's text as he explores Quaker response to both terror and fundamentalism. He acknowledges the evil and devastation caused by terrorist acts, but argues for a more nuanced understanding of what might drive people to kill indiscriminately. Alive to the urgency of the challenges posed by terrorism and violent clashes of beliefs, Lacey does not shrink from criticizing faith and religion when they stand in the way of peace. -- Publisher's description

With quiet urgency and deep honesty Pam Lunn addresses the unsustainability of the way we all live in the industrialized West, but this is not a counsel of despair or guilt.

The presence in the midst : reflections on discernment by Peter J Eccles( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do we make sense of and respond to our experience of the world around us? How do we discern well together? By considering profound questions such as free will and the place of life in the universe, Peter J. Eccles casts an illuminating and engaging light on a key element of Quaker practice. He emphasises the profound importance of discernment to Quaker experience: "The quality of the experience when we come together in meeting for worship depends on each one of us. The Presence in the Midst is always with us, ready to sustain and support us. It calls on each of us to rise above our weakness and live out our true self."--Publisher's description
