The Bible and other
Whilst the Bible is the source of almost all the testimonies
and the ways of Friends, Quakers do not regard any book as being
the actual "word of God".
Most Quakers regard the Bible as a great inspirational
book but we don't see it as the only one, and so we also read other
books that can guide our lives.
Our Advices and Queries ask, "Are you open to new
light, from whatever source it may come?"
What are Advices and Queries?
Advices and Queries is a small booklet containing a number of
questions and advice to Quakers. These are designed to provoke thought and
discussion rather than being prescriptive. The Advices and Queries have been
amended over the years so that they are relevant to the current society.
