William Law emphasizes the truth of our dependence upon the continual leading of the Spirit, and the assurance that that leading can be enjoyed without interruption. Although a generally modernized version of Andrew Murrays 1896 edition, Dave Hunt weaves together appropriate thoughts from Laws major works, enriching the book for todays reader.
William Law was an influential 18th century author of devotional works and controversial essays. Ordained and elected fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge in 1711, he forfeited his fellowship, and all prospects of advancement in the Church, because of his refusal to take oaths of allegiance to the English king. Denied the opportunity to preach, Law did his preaching through his writings, becoming one of the most eminent English writers on practical divinity in the eighteenth century. He was a genuine mystic in a worldly and rationalistic age, and is best known for the book A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life.

In all my reading I have never found anyone who had so helped me in understanding the Scripture truth of the work of the Holy Spirit.
