A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life by William Law proclaims that God does not merely forgive our disobedience, He calls us to obedience and to a life completely centered in Him. Law exposes pious hypocrisy and the corruption of the Church. His writing is fresh and sharp, as he vividly illustrates the holy Christian life as one lived totally for God. "Devotion signifies a life given, or devoted, to God. He, therefore, is the devout man, who lives no longer to his own will, or the way and spirit of the world, but to the sole will of God . . . by doing everything in the name of God, and under such rules as are conformable to His glory."

This reading is beyond my expectations. It stimulates to give thoughts to issues that you would otherwise consider trivial. A little leaven leavens the whole lump. Stirs hunger and thirst to go deeper into God.

I wish I was not limited to five stars. The moment I finished reading this book, I turned back to page one and started over immediately. Law's reasoning is, in my opinion, irrefutable, and following the precepts set forth in this book would, without a doubt, bring worldwide revival, for it would bring revival to the heart of every Christian that read it and put it into practice. And yet these are no more than what Scripture says...how is it possible we have so many editions, so many cover colors, and so many different styles and translations of the Holy Bible, and yet, as Law highlights here, we obey so little of it?From time to time I ask myself, If I were stranded on a deserted island, what one book, besides the Bible, would I want with me? This has become that book, and I believe that it always will be.
