William Law (1686-1761) was an English churchman, writer and teacher. His personal integrity, as well as his mystic and theological writing greatly influenced the evangelical movement of his day as well as Enlightenment thinkers such as the writer Dr Samuel Johnson and the historian Edward Gibbon. A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life is probably his best known work, and was first published in 1729. Together with its predecessor, A Practical Treatise Upon Christian Perfection, it deeply influenced the chief actors in the great Evangelical revival. John and Charles Wesley, George Whitefield, Henry Venn, Thomas Scott, and Thomas Adam all express their deep obligation to the author.

This edition, contains a brief account of his life; and three letters to a friend, not before published in any of his works.
