This book contains two works--the Theses
Theologicae and An Apology for the True Christian
Divinity. Both were written by Robert Barclay, an
important 17th century Quaker. Barclay was an
ardent Quaker and friend of other notable Quakers such as
William Penn and George Fox. In 1675, Barclay wrote These
Theologicae as a concise statement of the Quaker faith.
Three years later, he published An Apology for the True
Christian Divinity. It was meant as a defense of the
Quaker faith, as expounded in the Theses Theologicae.
Together they provide a bold rationale for Quaker
doctrine. Barclay's works are interesting beyond being
theological treatises--they also provide an intriguing
window into the history of Christian thought. Barclay's
prose is fairly modernized, making this book ideal for
slow, intensive study. These works are verifiable
classics, being reprinted over 60 times in the last
300 years. Much can be learned from Barclay and
