William Law’s classic book, A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life was a clarion call to action; to live a life worthy of one’s calling. “Devotion signifies a life given, or devoted to God.” The writings of William Law were challenging in the 18th century. Generations later the message is even more instructive and necessary.

A Serious Call Indeed
As great as this book is, he to me is a hypocrite. He preached and instructed all this doctrine and judged people for the littlest offense, yet he turned towards pagan mysticism towards the end of his life. In my opinion he lost all credibility. I don't know how he could have expected to be told by the LORD, "Well done good and faithful servant." ( Matthew 25:23.) I'm not judging him, just confused as how such a man who was so godly could do such a turn about.

I just couldn't get past the Old King James language. I'll have to get the message in another format.
