This book has a simple purpose: to show what a conversation with William Law (1696-1761), England's "greatest prose mystic," can do for a contemporary faith.
For the half-hearted Christians most are, Law composed one of the most startling and vigorous 'wake-up' calls in the Christian tradition. He also wrote, under the influence of his beloved Jacob Boehme, a series of works that spiral around the subject of Christ, born in believers as the formative power of their lives. His accounts of creation, fall, and redemption are arresting -- if sometimes strange -- in their expression, and his working of classical topics such as atonement, wrath and judgment, spirit, Prayer, and love suggest just how much we need a "mystical" theology.
