ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's religious perspectives from insights of Quaker theologian Elton Trueblood. It notes that the series of sermons came from the insights of Trueblood were converted into long manuscripts addressing adultery as wrong because fidelity is right. It states that Trueblood taps the rich reservoir of what he calls the witness of truth based on his 1968 volume enunciating theology.
