In this eighteenth-century abridgment by John Wesley, you’ll find a treatise on a Christian’s call to living a devout and holy life before God. Still relevant today, this classic explores what it really means to be a Christian and live a life wholly devoted to God our Father.
Originally written by William Law, Wesley has selected key portions, as he has done for many other lengthy seminal works, making them more readable and accessible for all.
A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life teaches the nature, importance, and obligation of a Christian’s devotion, relating it to our employment, possessions, and education, and describing how it affects our peace and happiness.
Acknowledging prayer is a vital part of devotion, Law offers insight for improving our rhythms of prayer and increasing the spirit of devotion—something we all desire but admittedly struggle to realize. He suggests using specific hours of the day to intentionally focus on different subjects, including humility, love, intercession, and conforming to the will of God.
Study this timeless classic, part of The John Wesley Collection, to appreciate the serious call we, as Christians, all have to live a devout and holy life before God, who made us and saved us.
