about this book

Philip Gulley invites us into a bracing encounter with the rich truths of Quakerism–a centuries-old spiritual tradition that provides not only a foundation of faith but also vision for making the world more just, loving, and peaceable by our presence.
 
In Living the Quaker Way, Gulley shows how Quaker values provide real solutions to many of our most pressing contemporary challenges. We not only come to a deeper appreciation of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality, we see how embracing these virtues will radically transform us and our world.
 
Living the Quaker Way includes a 30-day spiritual practice that applies the Quaker tradition of Queries.

“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.”
–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
