Customer Reviews for HarperSanFrancisco A Testament of Devotion

HarperSanFrancisco A Testament of Devotion

Since its first publication in 1941, A Testament of Devotion by the renowned Quaker teacher Thomas Kelly, has been universally embraced as a truly enduring spiritual classic. Plainspoken and deeply inspirational, it gathers together five compelling essays that urge us to center our lives on God's presence, to find quiet and stillness within modern life, and to discover the deeply satisfying and lasting peace of the inner spiritual journey. As relevant today as it was a half-century ago, A Testament of Devotion is the ideal companion to that highest of all human arts--the lifelong conversation between God and His creatures.

I have worn out my 30-year-old copy of the book, so ordered another to have a copy to loan out. No matter how often I have read it, this book consistently speaks to my heart.

One may conclude that Jesus of Nazareth occupies little place in Kelly's thought, for he seldom refers to the events of Bethlehem, Galilee, Calvary, or Pentecost. Incarnation and atonement are scarcely mentioned. This is because Kelly was oblivious to them or uncaring of them, but because he had adopted from study and personal experience the view of the living and written Word already described. In one striking passage, however, he does speak of the significance of Jesus, only once! Kelly is a Mystic, Quaker and Writer
