We are fortunate to have replaced two missing Swarthmore Lectures, namely:The
Two Cinnas: Quakerism, Revolution and Poetry by Laurence Lerner (1984),
and Helen Steven’s 2005 No Extraordinary Power: Prayer, Stillness and
Activism. These are lectures which remain highly relevant to us today. Our recent
lecture, in which Eden Grace explored eco-theology from early Friends to
Quakers today, will be published later this year. Finally, just out in a series called
Quaker Quicks, is a fine little book, The Guided Life, Finding purpose in
troubled times, in which Sheffield Quaker Craig Barnett gently and clearly shows
us the Quaker way and the spiritual enrichment that Quaker practices offer.
Please speak to Noël or Catharine if you have ideas for specific books or
coverage of particular topics.
