9780060754686: William Law: Selections from A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life (HarperCollins Spiritual Classics)

William Law (1686–1761) was an Anglican priest who specialized in providing spiritual direction. This occupation led his writings to be concrete and specific, yet profound and filled with rich insights. His best known piece, A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life, has inspired countless generations and deeply influenced the English religious revivals. The selections here offer practical spiritual direction for those seeking a meaningful life of prayer and devotion.

From the Inside Flap:

Originally published at the beginning of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, a time when rationalist criticism of religious belief was perhas at its peak, William Law's A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life succeeded in inspiring the most cynical men of the age with its arguments in favor of a spiritual life. More than simply articulating a set of rules to live by, Law's book examines what it means to lead a Christian life and criticizes the perversion of Christian tenents by the Establishment?whether secular or spiritual?whose real aim is temporal power. With a perface by the Reverend William Sloane Coffin, Jr., whose own direct engagement in social causes still finds inspiration in Law's argument, A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life is a book that can still speak to our time.

From the Back Cover:

"If Mr. Law finds a spark of piety in a reader's mind, he will soon kindle it into a flame." —Edward Gibbon
