In this solid clear pamphlet, Cooper maintains that the testimony of integrity undergirds all our other Friends testimonies, since it expresses our concern that our outward lives bear witness to the Truth discerned inwardly. Integrity needs to be both at the center of our consciousness and the center of our outward witness. The testimonies are not just Quaker "values," but derive from spiritual faith and experience, spiritual discernment and commitment.
