Item description for A Serious Call to a Devout & Holy Life [With CD] (Pure Gold Classics) by William Law...

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.?

More About William Law

William Law (1686-1761) was educated at Cambridge, took a teaching position there, and was also ordained in the Church of England. He lost his access to university venues and the parish ministry when he was unable to swear allegiance to the Hanoverian dynasty that replaced the Stuarts as the rulers of Great Britain. Although forbidden the use of pulpit and lecture hall, he preached through his books, including "Christian Perfection, The Grounds and Reasons of Christian Regeneration, Spirit of Prayer," and "Spirit of Love."

William Law was born in 1686 and died in 1761.

Reviews - What do customers think about Serious Call To A Devout And Holy Life?

Painfully edited by publisher  Apr 6, 2010
The publisher does not clearly advertise the fact that this is "sensitively revised in modern English" but it becomes clear within a few pages of reading it. It's been insultingly revised in a way that underestimates the reader's ability to comprehend. It has repeated, basic grammar mistakes that should be glaringly obvious. Who edited this? It is an injustice to William Law. Buy Law's book--not this one.
Long-lasting Effects  Dec 26, 2009
I remember reading this book while I was a college student. Today, nearly 37 years later, I still remember some points from the book. That's how much impact the book can have. Possibly the greatest lesson I learned was to ask myself the question every day, "Is anything I'm doing today going to have eternal value?" He did not teach it in those words, but that seemed to me the gist.

Someday all the insignificant and petty involvements of daily life on this planet will pale in view of what is lasting and eternal---what pleases and honors God Himself. Law grows very, very practical in his application of this principle and any Christian would benefit from the reading and study of this volume.
Inspired and brutally honest.  Dec 23, 2009
As a seeker of truth and a amateur theologian I read many books dealing with "what is the state of our being". None I have ever read deals so honestly and piercingly as this one. It may take a chapter or two to get past the writing style that was common for the times. But speaking of times this is timeless. Nothing he says is passe. If you are interested in truth about how you really live and what is really important you will "enjoy" this book. Be prepared to be haunted by it's message.

One other thing. This book, in my opinion, could be used as a text in a logic class. Law is simply brilliant.

You might also consider "A Testament to Devotion" by William Kelly or "The Gospel of the Kingdom" by E. Ladd.
Anything by Dallas Willard will be a great benefit and blessing to you.
A Timeless Classic  Nov 8, 2009
A classic book, originally published in 1728. William Law is a puritan. And he writes like a puritan - but what he writes is so worth reading. While this book may be difficult to read (330 pages) if you are not used to reading the puritans, it is worth trying. His whole point is that we must get serious as believers in our devotional life. What is devotion? He define sit as:

...a life given, or devoted to God. The devout, therefore, are those who live no longer to their own will or the way and spirit of the world, but live to the sole will of God, consider God in everything, and serve God in everything.

He goes on to say:

If we do not live unto God in all the ordinary actions of our life, and make him the rule and measure of all our ways, we cannot be said to live unto Him at all!

The goal of such a life is transformation & change.

As I said, if you are not used to puritan writing, you may find the middle chapters repetitive, and his reasoning `long winded' - but the danger in skipping over such chapters is to miss the nugget of great insight which the puritans can give to us.

A classic which should be read today - and one which should inspire us to be diligent and vigilant in spending time with our God and allowing his word to change how we live.
A challenge to Christian complacency by a mentor to John and Charles Wesley  Oct 12, 2009
A SERIOUS CALL TO A DEVOUT AND HOLY LIFE answers the question: "If Christians could hold fast to the tenets of the Faith when professing it was dangerous, why are they lax now, when being a Christian is safe and easy?" While simple and profound, William Law's writings also offer a severe challenge to comfortable or complacent Christians. William Law, who is often called the greatest of the post-Reformation mystics, was a fellow at Emmanuel College, Cambridge and was ordained a priest in the Anglican Church. After losing his position at Cambridge for refusing to take the Oath of Allegiance to George I, he became the center of a small spiritual community. He was a religious guide to the Gibbon family and included among his disciples John and Charles Wesley.
