This book contains the stories of ten men and women who knew the transforming work of “Truth in the inward parts.” Amidst a sea of Christian practice and profession, these believers would settle for nothing less than the light, power, and righteousness of Christ reigning in their purified vessels. They not only found the Pearl of great price by His own inward appearing, but they then sold all to buy this treasure, counting all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus their Lord.

The full title of this work is, “Piety Promoted in a Collection of the Dying Sayings of Many of the People Called Quakers; With a Brief Account of Some of Their Labors in the Gospel, and Sufferings for the Same.” These four volumes extend over a period of more than one hundred and seventy years, and contain concise accounts of the godly lives and remarkable deaths of more than six hundred persons. Among these there is found a great variety in age, condition in life, station in the Church, and growth in spiritual knowledge and experience; but they all agree in a united testimony to the blessed effects of Christ’s reign in the soul, and to the consolation and support it furnishes on a death bed.

As a thin sapling, over the course of time, becomes a thick and immovable tree, so the fallen and sinful nature of man, left to govern itself, quickly grows stiff and hardened in all sorts of evils. How important, therefore, is it “for a man to bear the yoke in their youth,” (Lam. 3:27) that is, to learn and submit to the restraining and transforming power of the cross when the heart is still young and tender. “Sowing Seeds of Righteousness” is a collection of letters and short treatises written by ten early Friends that offers invaluable counsel to both parents and children on this critical subject.
