Isaac Penington (1616-1679) was the son of a prominent English politician, and the father-in-law of William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania. Though born into a family of wealth and reputation, Penington’s heart was set upon things above from his earliest days. Even as a child, he recognized that the religion of his day stood in the will and understanding of man, in outward practices, duties, and scriptural truths that were professed but not truly possessed. Motivated by an insatiable hunger for truth, he sought the Lord with all his heart and was shown a Christianity that stood in, and flowed out from, the light and life of Jesus Christ reigning in the inner man. The Works of Isaac Penington (in four volumes) available through Friends Library Publishing are his unabridged works, which have not been edited, with the exception of some modernization of archaic words and spellings.

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.
