Ambrose Jessup Tomlinson stepped into the prevailing winds of holiness when he joined the Chester Preparative of the Westfield Monthly Meeting in 1889. By this time, holiness had flourished in the soil of Indiana Quakerism for over 20 years. The emergence of the holiness movement within the Society of Friends was dubbed as the “transformation of American Quakerism”. Many Friends had begun following the lead of Joseph John Gurney in dismantling the walls separating them from the wider world of evangelicalism. They embraced Victorian middle class culture, and believed in the efficacy of rational means to advance moral and religious cases such as abolition.
