Reg Naulty reviews 'The Cambridge Companion to Quakerism', edited by Stephen W Angell and Pink Dandelion
The big surprise in this book is that unprogrammed Friends number only about ten per cent of the world’s Friends. Kenya has the greatest number of Quakers, followed by the USA, and Bolivia. Kenya once had 1,500 Quaker schools, although some have been taken over by the government. Kenya, Bolivia, and the rest of the programmed world are predominately evangelical, have pastors, and hope for salvation through Christ.
