Though raised in the Church of England, John Spalding’s (1765-1795) pursuit of truth left him dissatisfied with the traditional worship of his day, concluding that, in many respects, it was neither pleasing to God nor effective towards the salvation of his soul. After at last finding the Pearl of great price, he composed a public letter to beloved friends and family attending St. Giles church in Reading, explaining his reasons for leaving their communion, and acknowledging himself to be “one who was long in the profession, but knew not the power, till it pleased the Lord, by the ministry and writings of the people called Quakers, to direct him to where alone the power is to be known, that is, within.”

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.
