This book will interest students of religious, women's, and social history. Malone was the Quaker mystic, educator, businessman, and evangelist who co-founded with his wife Emma a [Quaker] Christian Workers' Training School in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1892. Their school educated more women pastors in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries than did any other institution in the United States, boasted a woman co-president seventy-five years before a woman was invited to head a major American co-educational college or university, and implanted Quakerism in Africa (According to historian Thomas Hamm, the 'typical Quaker in the world today is a black Kenyan male.') the book has been called 'nonpareil' for understanding later nineteenth century Protestant America.
A classic...a rare excursion into the 'lived religion' of turn-of-the-century evangelical Quakers....--Edith Blumhofer, Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals, Wheaton College "Lauren King For Evangelical Friend "
