David Ferris (1707-1779) was favored as a young child with a merciful visitation of the Lord whereby he was called out of the vanities of the world and enabled to see through the empty forms and superstitions of man-made religion. He was brought up a Presbyterian and educated in their way, but by attending to the inward teachings of divine grace, he became convinced of the principles of Friends (having no outward knowledge of their doctrines or practices). Being timid and diffident by nature, he resisted the Lord’s call to ministry for many years, but at length gave up to preach the gospel and travel in the Lord’s service.

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.
