David Sands (1745-1816) was an active and influential minister in the Society of Friends at a time when the minds of many Friends (particularly in Ireland) had been led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. Originally from Long Island, Sands labored extensively throughout New England, and also made a lengthy trip to Europe where he preached the gospel in England, Ireland, France, Germany, and several other parts of the continent. His life was fraught with many deep conflicts, difficulties, and opposition, but he remained a faithful pillar in the church, and an example of humility and self-denial, in the midst of a much deteriorated Society.
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.
