Robert Barclay’s Apology [i.e. Defense] for the True Christian Divinity is probably the most well-known and celebrated of all early Quaker writings, and is a must for anyone desiring to understand the original principles and practices of the Society of Friends. The work consists of fifteen propositions, in which some of the most vital and misunderstood aspects of Christianity are brilliantly expounded and defended, and the reader is given a clear and compelling description of the true nature, experience, and extent of the salvation that God offers the soul through Jesus Christ. The publication offered here is the complete and unedited edition, first printed in 1675 in Latin, and then translated by Barclay himself into English.

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.
