A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life (Paperback)
William Law served the Lord in the 18th century as an Anglican pastor. Law was a man of conviction. He lost his position as a professor after refusing to take an oath of allegiance to Hnoverian King George I. Eventually Law was driven from the priesthood. He continued to teach and write. He was an excellent author. He met with and influenced great men including Edward Gibbons (The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire), William Wilberforce, Dr. Samuel Johnson, and the Wesley brothers. Law's glorification occurred in 1761. His book, A Serious Call to the Devout Life, explores the commitment and sacrifice Christians owe in seeking to live a life pleasing to God.
