Linton delivered "Quakerism as Forerunner" before the Seekers Association in
London. He "suggested that the
<https://www.britannica.com/topic/Society-of-Friends> Religious Society of
Friends is uniquely qualified to serve the many religious seekers who feel
unable, or hesitate, to accept a commitment to any specific denomination or
creed. The lecture challenged Friends to broaden their outlook and to extend
their area of concern" (from the "Introduction" by Winifred Burdick).

 

 <https://universalistfriends.org/bookstore/quaker-universalism> The Quaker
Universalist Reader #1 is a collection of essays, addresses, and lectures
about Quaker universalist themes, including Linton's talk, originally
published as a pamphlet series by the British Quaker Universalist Group
<http://qug.org.uk/>  (QUG).  

 

Quaker Universalist Fellowship <https://universalistfriends.org/>  published
that collection in print book format in 1986.  We have now republished it as
the first of three eBook volumes, all downloadable free
<https://universalistfriends.org/bookstore/> .
