9780140433999: George Fox: The Journal (Penguin Classics)

George Fox was the founder of the Society of Friends, and his journal, written during his incarceration, is the central document of Quakerism. This book, written in a style of simplicity and lucidity, describes Fox's religious conversion, his visions, and the persecution of the early Quakers. This is an edited and annotated edition of the journals, incorporating a wide range of recent discoveries about the early history of Quakerism, which has considerable bearing on the way Fox's book was posthumously asssembled.
