Shakers are hypocrites and fornicators.The author develops two perspectives on early Shakerism. He alternates passages by Calvin Green (1780-1869), a major Shaker historian and apologist of early Shakerism with passages by Reuben Rathbone (1760-1807), a man who joined the Shakers to have his soul saved but who became an apostate after twenty years with them.

On the one hand, the reader is delivered the truth of early Shakerism by a persona who primarily assumes the role of a self-effaced fact-dealing historiographer. On the other hand, the reader is told the truth of Shakerism by a man who was constantly involved in the day-to-day business of being a Shaker. These two truths are often very much at odds with each other. (What is the truth? said Pilate, but he did not bother to stay to hear the answer.)
