Samuel Crisp (1670—1704) was a brilliant young priest in the Church of England whose hunger for truth and righteousness led him to leave off all formal, shadowy religion and join with the despised people called Quakers to worship God in spirit and truth. This short document consists chiefly of two letters written by Crisp explaining his reasons for leaving the national worship, and describing how the Lord revealed His Son in him, “at the brightness of whose appearance the clouds are scattered and the shadows flee away.”
I set out, having in company a young man who had been bred at college, whose name was Samuel Crisp; a meek spirited youth, having received the knowledge of the truth the right way.- Samuel Bownas
