Michael Sheeran, a Jesuit scholar, spent two years visiting monthly meetings and observing annual sessions within Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, studying the actual decision making process used among Friends. Sheeran includes a detailed descriptions of the process at work and draws conclusions about what works well and what does not. Also included is a history of Quaker process. In the foreword Douglas Steere writes, "Earlier Sheeran [wrote] `Quakers do not begin with a theory, they begin with an event.' This event, this knowing at first hand that the continuous revelation is still at work is, in his judgement, what really matters."
