Mystic, visionary and evangelist, George Fox called on his followers to tremble before God, leading their enemies to dub them 'Quakers'. Within years, they had become one of England's largest radical sects, dedicated to establishing peace, justice and liberty on Earth. This gripping biography traces Fox's Leicestershire childhood, the growth of his religious and political ideas, his frequent imprisonment and savage persecution against the turbulent backdrop of the English Civil War and its aftermath. Slightly off-mint.
