Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


This book is the second volume in a two-volume devotional set. While this volume seeks to provide insight into how Christians can prepare themselves for eternity, its partner volume, Holy Living, offers readers advice concerning how to live a virtuous Christian life. The first half of Holy Dying delivers practical suggestions for cleansing and building up the soul in godly fashion. The latter half includes a memorial sermon both for a friend of his and for Christians who have died generally. Taylor's work has received praise not just for its devotional merit, but also for the delicate musicality of its prose. Both John Wesley and Samuel Taylor Coleridge held Taylor's achievements in equally high regard. Today, Taylor's practical wisdom still reads like prose poetry.
