KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is offered a generous and typical sample of the devotional writing of William Law, an eighteenth century English clergyman who directed his words to the skeptical world of eighteenth century England. But the life of devotion in any age is always concerned with self forgetfulness, prayer and love, so that such material as is to be found here is timeless and perennially useful. Mrs. Mary Cooper Robb, who has been assistant professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh, has chosen from Law's extensive writings the subjects which will have the greatest general appeal, -- ""The Nature of Redemption"", ""Christ Within, or the New Birth"", ""God as Law"", ""The Nature of Man's Will"", ""Prayer"", ""Faith"", and ""The Christian in the World"". Law's style is vigorous and often elegant, and deserves study by clergy and laity who give attention to the devotional life.
