Job Scott (1751-1793) was a gifted and beloved minister in the Society of Friends in America. He was known for his total dependence upon the immediate moving and empowering of the Holy Spirit, and his unwillingness to minister without a clear sense of the Lord’s will. On occasions, while preaching, he would suddenly stop speaking and sit down, explaining later that, having lost a sense of the authority and direction of the Spirit of God, he could do nothing without it. This large collection of letters and epistles addressed to friends, family, and fellow-ministers of the gospel was written between 1774 and 1793, and records some of the painful inward trials, spiritual favors, and heavenly wisdom of a man whose neck was entirely bowed and submitted to the yoke of Christ.

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.
