At Firbank Fell in the North of England, beneath the great rock on which George Fox preached, a plaque quotes his words: "Let your lives speak". Jan Arriens has written a book of stories that speak of Quakers living faithfully from the 17th century to the present day - finding practical ways to defeat slavery, protesting against nuclear weapons, discovering individual journeys to peace, simplicity, truth and equality. These stories will appeal to young and old. "Next time someone asks me 'Who are the Quakers?' or 'What do Quakers believe?' I think I'll just give them this book." - Steve Whiting, Secretary to Quaker Peace & Social Witness Testimonies Committee

Author Biography

Jan Arriens was born in England in 1943 to Dutch parents, and grew up in New Zealand and Australia. He spent ten years as a diplomat in the Australian foreign service, and has worked as a freelance translator since 1978. In 1987 he founded the death row correspondence organisation LifeLines after seeing a BBC TV documentary, and in that year he also became a Quaker. He is a member of Cambridge Hartington Grove meeting. He delivered the Henry Cadbury Memorial Lecture at Friends General Conference Gathering in Hamilton, Ontario, in 1996. His other books are The Knight and the Candle Flame (2000), a retelling of an ancient legend, and Seeking the Source (2005), a collection of stories set in a mythical Indian town
