Contemplation on his proverbs and principles will deliver the serenity of a much less chaotic time to your life and family. It is a vintage treasure that keeps our Christian heritage alive and unrevised for every family, leader, and library.

About the Author:

William Penn (1644-1718) is best known as a bold and principled founder of the city of Philadelphia. Having experienced religious persecution because of his staunch Quaker beliefs, he diligently planned for a place where tolerance and civility would define the governance of the people. Given extensive lands in the New World by royal order, which encompassed the state of Pennsylvania, he worked hard to promote the principles of democracy. Many would serve as inspiration for the future Constitution of the United States of America. Though a brilliant scholar and generous man, Penn's refusal to allow Pennsylvania to be stripped of these values in order to sell it, meant he would eventually die penniless and was buried in an unmarked grave.
