About this title


When 19-year-old Margaret became a Quaker in 1720, the quiet of Quaker practice was a sharp contrast to her family, who opposed her conversion with beating, interrogation and threats on her life. Yet she persevered only to face, a few years later, the greatest spiritual conflict of her adult life: a call to preach. Could she dare? First published in 1797 and now reprinted with a new introduction, The Conversion of Margaret Lucas is a remarkable autobiography of a woman's inner mind and religious choices. Her story will interest readers in women's studies, women in ministry and the history of religion.

From the Publisher:

One of our editors found a 19th century copy of this fascinating autobiography in a used book store in Wales in 1986, one week after the Church of Wales voted for the ordination of women. We decided to bring Margaret Lucas's story back into print as a way to honor women in Great Britain who have participated in centuries of religious struggles over leadership, violence and freedom.
