The humility and simplicity of John Pemberton (1727-1795), united with an ardent love for his fellow creatures and a desire for their everlasting welfare, made him an eminent and much-beloved minister in the Society of Friends. Though his journal speaks much of his weakness and struggles, and little of his gifts and attainments, yet he was highly esteemed by even the most notable ministers of his day. Rebecca Jones records in her journal, “George Dillwyn has sometimes made a comparison between some of us and John Pemberton, that we are as fishing with a crooked pin and thread, while John is casting his net into the sea.” The reader will be amply repaid for tracing the footsteps of a man much weaned from the spirit and ways of the world, who eagerly endeavoured to perform his day’s work in the day time.

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.
