101-TransformativeBooks - MEDIUMWe have just switched our weekly email digest over to the Aweber platform (from Feedburner, which was so antiquated that Google stopped supporting it almost five years ago, and MailChimp).

If you are already on our email list, the new weekly emails you receive from us, will look a little different — hopefully a little more stylish! — but will continue to feature all the top-notch book news and reviews that you have come to expect from us. I also expect that this new service will make it more likely that our emails will end up in your inbox and not in your spam folder or other low priority folders.

If you are already subscribed, and enjoy our emails, now would be a great time to recommend us to your friends (share this post on social media, for instance).

Fox-George-LOC

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the death of George Fox, the founder of the Quakers.

George Fox (September 1624 – 13 January 1691) was an English Dissenter and a founder of the Religious Society of Friends, commonly known as the Quakers or Friends.

The son of a Leicestershire weaver, Fox lived in a time of great social upheaval and war. He rebelled against the religious and political authorities by proposing an unusual and uncompromising approach to the Christian faith. He travelled throughout Britain as a dissenting preacher, for which he was often persecuted by the authorities who disapproved of his beliefs.

Fox married Margaret Fell, the widow of one of his wealthier supporters; she was a leading Friend. His ministry expanded and he undertook tours of North America and the Low Countries. Between these tours, he was imprisoned for more than a year. He spent the final decade of his life working in London to organize the expanding Quaker movement.

In remembrance of Fox, we are delighted to share three ebook editions of his work that is available for FREE download!
