Course Details

This course is an opportunity to engage with three theologians well known to Friends who have all published work that explores Quaker understandings for a wider audience. In Rex Ambler’s book The Quaker Way: a Rediscovery (Winchester, UK/Washington, USA: Christian Alternative, 2013), he described his aim as to ‘communicate as directly as I could what it means to be Quaker and to follow the Quaker way’. In Testimony: Quakerism and Theological Ethics (London: SCM Press, 2015), Rachel Muers attempts to show ‘how Quaker ways of living and acting relate to theology, to ways of thinking and reasoning about God and all things in relation to God’. In Boundless: the Early Christian Breakthrough (awaiting publication), Timothy Ashworth explores aspects of the lives of Jesus and the earliest Christians in ways that reveal the closeness of early Christian experience to Quaker understandings of worship and discernment.

This course involves a series of six live webinars. All webinar sessions will be on Thursday between 6.30pm and 8pm except Week 4 which will be on Tuesday 22nd October between 6.30 and 8pm. With preparatory/follow-up reading we suggest a time commitment of approximately three hours per week (including webinars).

Timothy Ashworth is Woodbrooke’s Biblical Studies tutor and Interfaith Co-ordinator. He has a particular interest in early Christian experience. Rachel Muers, a lifelong Quaker, lectures in Theology a Leeds University. Her books include Testimony: Quakerism and theological ethics. Rex Ambler taught theology at Birmingham University for over 30 years and since retiring has mainly researched and written about Quaker faith and practice
