The mid-seventeenth century saw both the expansion of the Baptist sect and the rise and growth of Quakerism. At first, the Quaker movement attracted some Baptist converts, but relations between the two groups soon grew hostile. Public disputes broke out and each group denounced the other inpolemical tracts. Nevertheless in this book, Underwood contends that Quakers and Baptists had much in common with each other, as well as with the broader Puritan and Nonconformist tradition. By examining the Quaker/Baptist relationship in particular, Underwood seeks to understand where and whyQuaker views diverged from English Protestantism in general and, in the process, to clarify early Quaker beliefs.

"Underwood's finely nuanced analysis explicates the doctrinal differences between the Quakers and Baptists while underscoring the substantial importance each accorded the primitive church. This will be the definitive study of seventeenth-century Baptist and Quaker tenets for a very longtime."--Seventeenth-Century News
