The writings were generally of a high standard, not written in theological language but providing a flavour of the thoughts and beliefs of the different quakers contributing. The book could be used as a devotional and certainly gave me a new insight into the Religious Society of Friends. What I particularly liked was the contributors' willingness to say when they were unsure about something or when issues were hard, and particularly appreciated the quotation given from one of the Quaker texts: "respect that of God in everyone... avoid hurtful criticism and provocative language... think it possible that you may be mistaken."
This is a book that would provide helpful insight and food for thought for Christians of all denominations but it does focus on some particularly Quaker ideas (meeting for worship and pacifism, for example) which may mean it is more popular amongst Quakers. However it's a worthwhile read for anyone who wants to consider their spirituality further.
