Careful explication of differences.

This is an excellent book. It clearly explains differences between Quakers and Baptists in detail. The Lamb's War is, of course, that referred to in the Book of Revelations. One of the principal differences it identifies between Quakers and Baptists is that Quakers believe the second coming was purely spiritual and has already occurred. This is generally seen as an heretical view. That view explains the reason that traditional Quakers which most Quakers were until the 1850s at least, were politically conservative in American terms, even though they adhered to a religion which is generally regarded as being as at the far left of the Reformation. That is because strong left wing views religiously are often associated with a belief in a future second coming - a Millennarian attitude. Quakerism essentially repudiated any concept of a Utopia because the present world is indeed, the one that has already benefited from the second coming.
