Paul Anderson ’78, Ph.D. has written a new book, Following Jesus, published by Barclay Press, 2013. In the book, Paul uses the same biblical lens employed by the founders of the Quaker movement to explore what it looks like to be the body of Christ. In practical terms, he explores a journey that is Christian rather than denominational.
“Paul Anderson provides a welcome and valued link between our evangelical call to actively and intentionally live our life in Christ and our desire to do so in ways that reflect our Quaker testimonies. His treatment of ‘convincement versus coercion’ alone is worth the read,” Malone president, Dr. David A. King, said about Following Jesus.
Paul is professor of biblical and Quaker studies at George Fox University, Newberg, Oregon. He is a respected New Testament scholar and a former editor of Evangelical Friend and Quaker Religious Thought.
