While in a London prison in 1668 William Penn wrote No Cross, No Crown. This was his most famous work and is a discourse on the power of the cross and self-denial. In dramatic and persuasive style Penn portrays the beauty and power of the cross as the only pathway to the crown. "Christ's cross, is Christ's way to Christ's crown." Penn's great passion was that this book would win the heart of man for His beloved Master. In the second half of the book Penn provides living testimonies of many famed and learned people from the past whose lives bear witness to the truth of his words. These were men and women who, down through the ages, fought against the excesses of the age and lived their life in self-denial, temperance and piety.
Outlining a life of discipleship in Christ, William Penn addresses topics relevant today such as daily bearing the cross, worship and our inner character. Selleck's modern English translation makes this classic (written in 1668) easily readable in the 21st century.
Penn founded Pennsylvania as a "Holy Experiment" under Charles II. He was a well-known proponent of religious freedom and tolerance in England and parts of Europe, specifically as a Quaker. His convictions landed him in jail serveral times. He wrote No Cross, No Crown while imprisoned in the Tower of London. As is the case with most who carry the truth of the gospel so passionately, he spent much time in prison for what he believed.
