CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015 M04 27 - 266 páginas
By the time of William Law, the Church of England was a steady power in the land, but the clergy's relationship with their monarchs could still be tenuous, particularly when the crown passed from Stuart to Hanover. William Law's A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life was published in 1728, 14 years after George I ascended the throne and the author retired from his official religious duties - as a matter of principle - to teach and to write. A Serious Call reminds readers of the basic virtues of the Christian faith and would influence generations of later Christians.
