The classic treatise “No Cross, No Crown” was first written while William Penn was imprisoned for his faith in the Tower of London in 1668, when only twenty-four years of age. Later in life, Penn greatly enlarged upon the original publication, treating exhaustively upon the particular sins of pride, avarice, and luxury, and adding a large collection of testimonies from others authors in order to further substantiate his position. This edition is the entire unabridged work in two parts. The first is entitled, “A Discourse Showing the Nature and Discipline of the Holy Cross of Christ;” and the second, “The Living and Dying Testimonies of Many Persons of Fame and Learning, both of Ancient and Modern Times, in Favour of this Treatise.”

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.
