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.

The Quaker Theological Discussion Group (QTDG) will hold two virtual panels December 1–2, 2023 on the topic, “Tradition & Transformation: Quakerism 400 Years after the Birth of George Fox.” We invite Friends (and anyone with interest) to offer presentations on the topic described in the linked CFP. Panelists will each share for 15 minutes from their experience and/or research, followed by a question and answer session. Panelists may be invited to share their presentations as papers in Quaker Religious Thought (QRT).

To contribute a presentation proposal, please submit your topic and around 250 words describing what you would be sharing about. Submissions are encouraged on or before August 1, 2023.
