This excellent and helpful pamphlet addresses lots of issues about leadings: their nature, the process of centering to clarify them, discernment, commitment, obedience, the role of others in discernment and support, applying our testimonies in the modern world, how we are called to our own faithfulness by the witness of others. A leading comes from an experience of the living spirit, and its often quiet promptings must be discerned, and distinguished from strong opinions of self-will. He gives many illustrative examples from early Quakers that are both clarifying and fascinating.
