The Society of Friends, the “Quakers”

My Tuesday evening church men’s group is currently reading Celebration of Discipline by Richard J. Foster over the next three months, Richard Foster is a Quaker and that has brought up some questions about who exactly are the Quakers? I excerpted the section on Friends from¬†Handbook of Denominations in the United States by Frank S. Mead and Samuel S. Hill. You can get the PDF file from the link below:
