Copenhaver clarifies Steere's solution to the dilemma and establishes a dialogue between a classical Quaker and a liturgical approach to the problem as a foundation for further study in the academy and in the churches. Contents: Steere in Context; Steere's Treatment of Prayer and Social Responsibility; Steere's Assimilation of Von H,gel and Woolman; Other Literary and Theological Sources; A Critical Evaluation of Steere's Spiritual Theology; Steere's Contribution to Contemporary Spirituality.
