Theses Theologicae and An Apology for the True Christian Divinity

Author: Barclay, Robert (1648-1690)

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 his writings.
