Thomas Ellwood (1639-1714) was a beloved elder and an eminent writer in the early Society of Friends. When a young man, his father took great offense at his joining in society with the despised people called Quakers, and frequently beat him with both fists and cane. At length, Ellwood found refuge in the home of Isaac and Mary Penington, where he came to be considered a member of their family, and eventually served as tutor to the Penington’s young children. Thomas Ellwood is best known among Friends for his many publications in defense of the Truth, and for being the editor of George Fox’s journal.

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.
