by Arthur O. Roberts
Arthur O. Roberts illuminates the passion, struggles, and legacy of a man committed to authentic Christian living at a critical time in history. George Fox, desiring a kingdom of truth and love on this side of the flaming sword of Eden, led a seventeenth-century spiritual awakening that attracted thousands of people--people who became known as the Society of Friends (Quakers). Through Flaming Sword is both a spiritual biography of Fox and a closer look at Fox's legacy, particularly his thoughts on Christian holiness and the nature of the church. Today's restless pilgrims, troubled by the world and diligently trying to follow Jesus, will find in Fox a spirited companion for the journey.
