Although John Barclay (1797-1838) was a descendent of the well-known apologist Robert Barclay, he was a complete stranger to the life and power of Truth until he began to seek the Lord with all his heart, somewhere around his 18th year. The Society of Friends at that time was in a low and declining state, but John Barclay dug deep and found the Root of life from which the early Quakers had sprouted, and in time became a living branch himself, and a very useful author and minister. He lived only 41 years, but his short life was wholly dedicated to his Master’s cause, and many of the journals, memoirs, and biographies of Early Friends that we possess now are the fruit of his arduous and faithful labor with the original documents.

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.
