George Fox

George Fox (1624-1691) is generally considered the founder of the Society of Friends (Quakers). As a young man, Fox could find no rest in the lifeless, outward Christianity of his day, seeing clearly that most believers professed far more than they truly possessed. This journal tells the story of his desperate search for the Truth, his discovery of a Christianity that stands in the life and light of Jesus Christ, and the ensuing fifty years of powerful ministry that turned the world upside down. This is the complete and unabridged Journal of George Fox, originally compiled and edited by Thomas Ellwood in 1694, and later divided into chapters, and supplied with numerous historical and biographical notes by William Armistead in 1852.

He was valiant for the truth, bold in asserting it, patient in suffering for it, unwearied in labouring in it, steady in his testimony to it; immovable as a rock. Deep he was in divine knowledge, clear in opening heavenly mysteries, plain and powerful in preaching, fervent in prayer. He was richly endued with heavenly wisdom, quick in discerning, sound in judgment, able and ready in giving, discreet in keeping counsel; a lover of righteousness, an encourager of virtue, justice, temperance, meekness, purity, chastity, modesty, humility, charity, and self-denial in all, both by word and example.

The Epistles of George Fox is the unabridged collection of his 420 letters, general epistles, and testimonies, written over the course of his long and fruitful life. Some of these were addressed to particular individuals or ministering Friends, but the majority were written to the church at large, or to specific meetings of the Society of Friends in places like England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, America, Holland, and the Caribbean Islands. In his introduction to this publication, George Whitehead strongly recommends “the serious reading and perusal of the ensuing collection, as containing much Christian counsel to the many and various states and conditions of enlightened and enlivened souls, who are traveling and breathing after God.” Volume 1 of 2 (also originally published as volume 7 of the 8-volume “Works of George Fox”).

“But above all he excelled in prayer. The inwardness and weight of his spirit, the reverence and solemnity of his address and behavior, and the fewness and fulness of his words, have often struck even strangers with admiration, as they often reached others with consolation. The most awesome, living, reverent frame I ever felt or beheld, I must say, was his in prayer. And truly it was a testimony that he knew and lived nearer to the Lord than other men; for they that know Him most, see most reason to approach him with reverence and fear.”

William Penn
