William Law, An Extract from a Letter Written by the Late William Law, pamphlet
The Spiritual Life Does Not Require Uninvited Guests
This pamphlet, An Extract from a Letter Written by the Late William Law, is an amusing effort by the writer to head off an unwelcome visit.
This 18th Century printing of the opinions of British Theologian William Law, makes absolutely clear the theological reasons why the inquirer should not visit him. Law makes sure that J*** R***** understands that “The Spiritual Life is Nothing else but the working of the Spirit of God within us, and therefore our own Silence must be a great Part of our Preparation for it…”
