Practicing Peace
Practicing Peace A Devotional Walk Through The Quaker Tradition BY CATHERINE WHITMIRE Sorin Books 2007 272 PP. Paper $16.95
Practicing Peace is an accessible, well presented, comprehensive and fascinating book on the Quaker peace testimony written by the best-selling author of Plain Living: A Quaker Path to Simplicity. Stories of successful nonviolent movements throughout history are partnered with quotes mined from over 350 years of Quaker teachings on peace. Queries lead readers on a journey to self-discovery, through the stages of practicing peace: first by focusing within themselves, then looking outward to practice peace in the world around. Includes a brief biography of each Quaker quoted in the book, a glossary of common Quaker terms as well as a guide to additional online resources.

"We at QuakerBooks of FGC think both of Cathy’s books are essential to any Quaker library."
