Book Review: Heaven on Earth: Quakers and the Second Coming, by Ben Pink Dandelion, Douglas Gwyn, and Timothy Peat

The 20th anniversary edition of “Heaven on Earth: Quakers and the Second Coming,” by Ben Pink Dandelion, Douglas Gwyn, and Timothy Peat, was reviewed in the last QRT volume by Jay Miller. This post also includes a photo of the authors from ca. 1997 and ca. 2017!

Miller describes the book’s grounding in Peat’s biblical scholarship, along with analyses by Gwyn and Dandelion of the apocalyptic Quakerism and realising eschatology espoused by early Friends, and shifts in eschatological hermeneutics in subsequent centuries. Check out his review by purchasing your copy of QRT #133 here.
