    A Serious Call To A Devout And Holy Life - Now, who that lacks this general sincere intention, can be reckoned a Christian? And yet if it was among Christians, it would change the whole face of the world: true piety, and exemplary holiness, would be as common and visible, as buying and selling, or any trade in life. Description: 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.

Containing the great obligations and the great advantages of making a wise and religious use of our estates and fortunes. As the holiness of Christianity consecrates all states and employments of life unto God, as it requires us to aspire after a universal obedience, doing and using everything as the servants of God, so are we more especially obliged to observe this religious exactness .
