Stephen Crisp

Stephen Crisp (1628-1692) is an example of one whose desperate search for Truth (lasting twenty long years) at last brought him to an experiential knowledge of the grace and truth that are in Jesus Christ. Having found the Pearl of great price, he sold all to buy it, and became an eminent preacher and writer among the early Society of Friends. For the remaining thirty-five years of his life, he labored in the power and wisdom of the Spirit, traveling throughout England, Scotland, Holland, and Germany, and writing many valuable epistles and treatises to the church in both the English and Dutch languages.

There was perhaps, with the exception of George Fox, no individual who had upon him a greater share of the weight and charge of the new Society [of Friends] than Stephen Crisp.

“For though it is true that none can obey the Lord but by His grace and power given unto them, yet He has made His grace—-even that grace which brings salvation—-appear unto all men, as is said in Titus 2:11. And this grace has appeared unto you, and in you, to whom I write, and is a reprover in you. You must therefore turn to that which smites you, and then you turn to the grace of God.”
