Christopher Story (1648-1720) was inclined to piety from his youth. But when the Lord was pleased to open his understanding, he saw that his former religious building must be entirely thrown down, having not been built upon the true foundation. Being awakened to see something of the “exceeding sinfulness” of sin, he willingly bowed under the yoke of Christ, took up his daily cross, and thereby became a disciple and follower of Him. In time, he was endued with a large gift in the ministry which, though simple, was powerful and edifying, and was said to “often fall upon the people of God like a sweet shower upon the tender grass.”

Friends Library Publishing exists to freely share the writings of early members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), believing that no other collection of Christian writings more accurately communicates or powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
