3. A Lenape among the Quakers: The Life of Hannah Freeman

On July 28, 1797, an elderly Lenape woman stood before the newly appointed almsman of Pennsylvania’s Chester County and delivered a brief account of her life. In a sad irony, Hannah Freeman was establishing her residencya claim that paved the way for her removal to the poorhouse.

Ultimately, however, it meant final removal from the ancestral land she had so tenaciously maintained. Thus was William Penn’s peaceable kingdom preserved. A Lenape among the Quakers reconstructs Freeman’s history, from the days of her grandmothers before European settlement to the beginning of the nineteenth century.

The story that emerges is one of persistence and resilience, as Indian Hannah negotiates life with the Quaker neighbors who employ her, entrust their children to her, seek out her healing skills, and, when she is weakened by sickness and age, care for her.

Yet these are the same neighbors whose families then dispossess her own. Fascinating in its own right, Freeman’s life is also remarkable as a unique account of a Native American woman in a colonial community during a time of dramatic transformation and upheaval.

‘All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well’Julian of Norwich is one of the most celebrated figures of the English Middle Ages. She is esteemed as one of the subtlest writers and profoundest thinkers of the period for her account of the revelations that she experienced in 1373.

Julian lived as an anchoress in Norwich, and after recoveringfrom a serious illness she described the visions that had come to her during her suffering. She conceived of a loving and compassionate God, merciful and forgiving, and believed in our ability to reach self-knowledge through sin.

She wrote of God as our mother, and embraced strikingly independenttheological opinions. This new translation conveys the poise and serenity of Julian’s prose style to the modern reader. It includes both the short and long texts, written twenty years apart, through which Julian developed her ideas.

In his introduction Barry Windeatt considers Julian’s astonishingly positive vision ofhumanity and its potential for spiritual transformation. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World’s Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

“Revelations of Divine Love” is a text of Julian of Norwich’s dream visions that she had when she was near death. Then, after being miraculously healed, Julian of Norwich dedicated the rest of her life to writing her series of sixteen visions for all to read and understand.

During her life, Norwich had suffered through three different bouts of the Black Death. Julian of Norwich remained optimistic in her faith, though; she denied that the plagues were God’s punishment on the wicked. Instead, she believed that God was incapable of punishment.

In her eyes, every person was worthy of God’s salvation, and Hell was not a place of banishment and torture. She thought that God’s true intentions of Hell were yet to be discovered. In “Revelations of Divine Love,” Julian of Norwich extrapolates on her beliefs and describes the visions she received about the Passion of the Christ as well as the Virgin Mary.

In addition to being a truly inspiring work, it is also hailed as the first book written in English by a woman. Regardless if it is read for its historical significance or its religious message, “Revelations of Divine Love” is a truly inspiring text of Christian Mysticism.

If God is love, why are so many Christians fearful, and why do so many church leaders sound hateful? Two controversial pastors address issues the church wont face, calling us to restore grace as the center of the Christian life.

O In If Grace Is True, Pastors Philip Gulley and James Mulholland revealed their belief that God will save every person. They now explore the implications of this belief, and its power to change every area of our lives. They attempt to answer one question: If we took Gods love seriously, what would our world look like?

Gulley and Mulholland argue that what we believe is crucial and dramatically affects the way we live and interact in the world.Beliefs have power. The belief in a literal hell where people suffer eternally has often been used by the Church to justify hate and violence, which contradicts what Jesus taught about love and grace.

The authors present a new vision for our personal, religious, and corporate lives, exploring what our world would be like if we based our existence on the foundational truth that God loves every person. Gulley and Mulholland boldly address many controversial issues people in the pews have wondered about but churches have been unwilling to tackle.

A collection of compelling letters between Frank and Lucy Sunderland, English pacifists and fervent supporters of Labour politics and the New Town movement, who were separated in 1916 when Frank was given his prison sentence as a conscientious objector. Frank and Lucy wrote to each other from November 1916 until April 1919 while Frank was in prison at Wandsworth and at Bedford.

Lucy looked after their three children at home in Letchworth, and earned enough to keep the family afloat by keeping hens, collecting insurance premiums and taking in sewing. Their letters record how their predominantly pacifist and Quaker circle in Letchworth supported the family during its ordeal, contrasting with the attitude of their own London families.

This unique collection of letters is important as a working-class record of wartime experience. The unsophisticated descriptions about heartfelt, practical concerns reveal the wife’s voice as well as that of the conscientious objector: no other WW1 memoirs or diary gives these details of a woman struggling to keep the home going in her husband’s absence.
