1924. A tercentenary address by Jones given at Haverford College, Haverford, Pennsylvania, May 17, 1924. George Fox stands forth a true specimen of an apostolic man and heroic reformer, absolutely sincere, honest, brave, uncompromising, and with an eye single for the light of God in his soul. His place in religious history is among the spiritual Reformers of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Dr. Jones gives a most sympathetic account of Fox's life; he describes him as a mystic and yet a very practical Christian, and shows how he pronounced against social evils which had gone unchallenged for centuries and with the same sure insight suggested a new way of action. The author's account of the beginning of Fox's religious movement, and the gradual development of the Society of Friends is followed by a striking summary of Fox's mission and its meaning for the present age.
