William Bennit (1634-1684) was an early minister of the Gospel among the people called Quakers, and one who partook largely of the persecution and sufferings to which that people were for many years exposed. For his testimony to the truth, he spent most of his adult life confined in filthy jails, but being preserved in remarkable patience and resignation to the will of Lord, his inner man grew strong in the Truth, and both his life and his writings manifest a depth and a sweetness that show him to “have been with Jesus.”
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.
