Random House, Inc A Serious Call To A Devout And Holy Life

Originally published at the beginning of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, a time when rational criticism of religious belief was perhaps 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 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 tenets by establishments---whether secular or spiritual---whose real aim is temporal power. With a preface by the Reverend William Sloane Coffin, Jr., pastor emeritus of New York's Riverside Church, whose engagement in social causes continues to find inspiration in Law's argument, A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life is a book that can still speak to our time.

Possibly the most practical, straightforward, and logical book ever written on Christian living. Be prepared to see what Christianity looks like to someone who is unencumbered by worldiness and has a heart dedicated to Christ alone.
