The purpose of the Quaker Theological Discussion Group (QTDG) is to explore the meaning and implications of our Quaker faith and religious experience through discussion and publication. This search for unity in the claim of truth upon us concerns both the content and application of our faith.

Quaker Religious Thought (QRT) is a print journal sponsored by the Quaker Theological Discussion Group and publishes many of the paper presentations given to the QTDG, as well as other articles and book reviews of interest to the Religious Society of Friends. QRT is published twice annually as a print journal and becomes available digitally after 18 months.

You can access our digital archives online, view our index of past articles, or subscribe to QRT.
