Description: In her Eva Koch scholarship Elizabeth Duke considers whether there can be any common ground around the concept of ‘salvation’ amongst Friends worldwide. Her approach to ideas of liberation through a direct experience of the divine, through the sharing of truth by testimony, and through the ways in which we live the Gospel, point us in some hopeful directions for developing a shared story about ‘salvation’.
Elizabeth has drawn on her work and contact with Friends across the world over an extended period; what has emerged in her study is challenging, but it also opens new doors to understanding an experience which for many lies beyond simple words. With our many theological and spiritual differences Elizabeth has got to the root of some core ways in which we may find unity.
