George Fox: an evangelical Quaker perspective

Wednesday 13 March
19:00-20:30 (UK time)

A drawing of George Fox

This single live session is part of a series celebrating the 400th birthday of George Fox, in which key speakers assess Fox’s legacy from a variety of positions. In this session Paul N. Anderson will consider Fox from an Evangelical Quaker perspective.

The majority of Friends in the world today are broadly Evangelical in their orientation. This stream of Quakerism has its roots in the nineteenth century when Evangelical revival movements, especially those coming out of Methodism, had a major impact on Quaker communities in Britain, Ireland, and North America.

Paul Anderson, who is Professor of Biblical and Quaker Studies at George Fox University in Oregon, and a member of North West Yearly Meeting, will outline those aspects of the life, ministry and writings of George Fox that have a particular resonance for Evangelical Friends. Was George Fox an Evangelical?

The session is part of the celebrations of Fox 400.
