I've been reading Barclay's Catechism and Confession of Faith. It emphasizes the kingdon of God within and the inner light of Jesus and the Holy Ghost. It also emphasizes a strong scriptural foundation for Quaker beliefs.

Is this something that is applicable to Quaker experience today, or a relic of one man's 17th century defense that Quakerism is not a matter of men's eschewing The Bible in favor of their individual "imaginatings" of Christ?
