AS FAR AS I AM AWARE, WILLIAM LAW WROTE SEVERAL BOOKS, TWO OF THEM BECAME , CHRISTIAN CLASSICS, OF THESE TWO,THE FIRST ONE WAS “A SERIOUS CALL TO A DEVOUT AND HOLY LIFE”, WHICH, VERY STRONGLY IMPACTED THE COURSE OF JOHN WESLEY’S LIFE, AND THE SECOND BOOK, CALLED “AN HUMBLE AND AFFECTIONATE ADDRESS TO THE CLERGY”, HAD AN ENORMOUS EFFECT ON THE LIFE OF ANDREW MURRAY.

INSTEAD OF POSTING , “A SERIOUS CALL TO A DEVOUT HOLY LIFE”, I DECIDED TO POST, JOHN WESLEY’S EXTRACT. m.l.

John Wesley calls it one of three books which accounted for his first "explicit resolve to be all devoted to God." Later, when denying, in response to a question, that Methodism was founded on Law's writings, he added that "Methodists carefully read these books and were greatly profitted by them." In 1744 he published extracts from the Serious Call, thereby introducing it to a wider audience than it already had. About eighteen months before his death, he called it "a treatise which will hardly be excelled, if it be equalled, either for beauty of expression or for depth of thought."

IN THE CASE OF THE SECOND BOOK, “AN HUMBLE AND AFFECTIONATE ADDRESS TO THE CLERGY”, THE ENTIRE BOOK WILL BE POSTED ON THIS SITE.

Andrew Murray said of Law's Affectionate Address to the Clergy . . . "I do not know where to find anywhere else the same clear and powerful statement of the truth which the Church needs at the present day. I have tried to read or consult every book I knew of, that treats of the work of the Holy Spirit, and nowhere have I met with anything that brings the truth of our dependence on the continual leading of the Spirit, and the assurance that that leading can be enjoyed without interruption, so home to the heart as this teaching ...which I believe to be entirely scriptural, and to supply what many are looking for . . ."
