Review Text

  • By Ralph Lawrence on May 2, 2016

    Rufus Jones was one of the most honored and respected Quaker theologians and philosophers in history, and it’s a privilege to be able to read his material in this Kindle edition. He fits in with a tradition that includes such spiritual leaders as John Woolman and D. Elton Trueblood, among others. He writes of mystical authors from the time of John the Scot, a.k.a. Erigena, the Waldensese (early Italian protestants), St. Francis of Assisi, into the time of Meister Eckhart, Wyclif, the Anabaptists, and later English mystics. This is an extremely valuable work, and I highly recommend it. Perhaps Mr. Jones' philosophy can be captured (though it's impossible to summarize him briefly) at least partially in this quotation:"Two great tendencies come into prominence in the entire course of religious history,—the tendency, on the one hand, to regard religion as something permanent and unchanging,and on the other hand, the equally fundamental tendency to revivify and reshape religion through fresh and spontaneous experiences. It is natural that both tendencies should appear, for religion is both eternal and temporal—it is the child of permanence and change. No religion can live and be a power in this evolving world unless it changes and adjusts itself to its environment, and no religion can minister to the deepest needs of men unless it reveals permanent and time-transcending Realities."
