This is a fascination paperbound modern translation of a rare book by William Penn, the founder of the English colony in Pennsylvania. Imprisoned by the Church of England for his dissident, religious views, Penn wrote most of this book in his 20's, locked in the infamous Tower of London. Rarely seen since 1668, No Cross, No Crown remains as relevant today as it was 300 years ago. William Penn had a very deep faith in God and read his Bible every day. Leading his followers to the New World, he established a utopian society that he called his Holy Experiment. These determined, early settlers forged a successful community that set the stage for the U.S. Constitution. Some of our American founding fathers, including Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, derived many of their seminal ideas from William Penn. He believed that all men are created equal. Today the Great Challenge is for you to pick up the cross of Jesus daily, to live faithfully, and to receive your crown in heaven.
