The book is quiet and pensive, filled with the power of Penn's wisdom through his bright and simple maxims. Though written over three hundred years ago, Penn's work offers timeless advice on such topics as friendship, education, religion, and family.

More About William Penn

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Penn founded Pennsylvania as a "Holy Experiment" under Charles II. He was a well-known proponent of religious freedom and tolerance in England and parts of Europe, specifically as a Quaker. His convictions landed him in jail serveral times. He wrote No Cross, No Crown while imprisoned in the Tower of London. As is the case with most who carry the truth of the gospel so passionately, he spent much time in prison for what he believed.

William Penn was born in 1644 and died in 1718.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Penn is good but language is a barrier  Jun 29, 2003
Penn had some excellent things to say and he said them well three hundred years ago. What he had to say is still excellent but, unfortunately, the old language makes the reading a chore. Since a more complete version is available in contemporary language, I recommend Eric Taylor's edition, (0836192052) published by Herald Press. Mr Taylor's historical introduction and endnotes are an added bonus for the inquiring mind.
Better version available  Jun 25, 2003
Penn has some relevant things to say, but unfortunately this version (Applewood) is in the original language -- that is, it's 300 years old. If you want something more readable (and understandable), check out a recently published edition by Herald Press (ISBN: 0836192052, March 2003; Eric Taylor, Editor). Taylor has done a great job of modernized the text without dumbing it down. There's a great historical introduction, a bunch of endnotes, and More Fruits of Solitude which the Applewood version does not include. For my money, the Taylor version is the better choice.
