Robert Barclay


By Mark Herranen - Posted on January 17 2015

 Sunday, Jan. 18, Andy Miller will lead a discussion in Adult First Day School about Robert Barclay, who has been called the first Quaker theologian.  His best-known work "The Apology  for True Christian Divinity", published in 1675, expressed the early theological consensus of Friends in England.  In this work Barclay attempted to explain Friends' theological principles to the King of England and his people. Barclay also proposed that the Friends held beliefs agreeable to scripture, reason and true learning, and that they were peaceful and should not be persecuted.
  Adult First Day School begins at 9:20 a.m. in the Meeting House.
