Jane Hoskens (1693-1764) was born in London and strictly educated in the profession of the Church of England. Though she often “slighted the blessed reproofs of the Holy Spirit of Christ” in her early years, after a serious bout of sickness that brought her near unto death, she was awakened to her spiritual condition and made willing to dedicate herself the to Lord’s service. Feeling it required of her to leave England for Pennsylvania, she there became acquainted with the Society of Friends, and was soon convinced that true Christianity was a work of God that must begin in the heart, and there be carried on by an unconditional surrender to the power of divine grace.
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.
