Summary

William Law saw many changes during his lifetime: the laws and authorities of his British homeland underwent a major shift, he switched from one career to another, and his personal spiritual philosophies evolved dramatically over time. Among his many writings, Law wrote polemical tracts, practical devotional books, and, later in his life, mystical reflections. His work influenced some of the greatest minds of the 18th century, including Samuel Johnson, George Whitefield, and John and Charles Wesley. William Law’s personal letters to friends, clergymen, and family give readers a unique insight into his fascinating and complex mind. One can trace the development of Law’s relationships and ideas as his life unfolds. Just as he emphasizes holy living and obedience to Christ in his published works, so also does Law emphasize it in his everyday affairs.
