Item Description...
Overview
This book has a simple purpose: to show what a conversation with William Law England's "greatest prose mystic," can do for contemporary faith. Law composed one of the most startling and vigorous wake-up calls in the Christian tradition. Under the influence of his beloved Jacob Boehme, Law also wrote a series of works that spiral around the subject of Christ, born in believers as the formative power of their lives. His accounts of creation, fall, and redemption are arresting in their expression, and his working of classical topics such as atonement, wrath and judgment, spirit, prayer, and love suggest just how much we need a "mystical" theology.

Publishers Description
This book has a simple purpose: to show what a conversation with William Law (1696-1761), England's "greatest prose mystic," can do for a contemporary faith. For the half-hearted Christians most are, Law composed one of the most startling and vigorous 'wake-up' calls in the Christian tradition. He also wrote, under the influence of his beloved Jacob Boehme, a series of works that spiral around the subject of Christ, born in believers as the formative power of their lives. His accounts of creation, fall, and redemption are arresting -- if sometimes strange -- in their expression, and his working of classical topics such as atonement, wrath and judgment, spirit, Prayer, and love suggest just how much we need a "mystical" theology."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
You will find Heaven in Quenching Hell  Sep 6, 2009
"That book looks scary," said my teenaged daughter as I turned the pages of this incredible tome. I can see why she said that: it is entitled "Quenching Hell" (what does that mean, one might ask), and glowing flames (presumably from that dreaded location) flicker across its front cover. Maybe it does deserve a different title and a "less scary" cover design, because it is quite simply one of the best books on the Christian inner tradition to be published in this decade.

Before this book came along, I was intrigued by William Law (the 18th-century Anglican layman who wrote A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life -- still in print after all these years -- the many five-star reviews on this site speak eloquently of his continuing relevance to the Christian tradition). But until now, there was no modern presentation of his work to help us go deeper. Anglican priest Alan Gregory does this with grace and ease -- and this is no dry academic volume but one with immediate relevance to the reader's everyday life. The author places Law's work in the context of his time as well as ours. He doesn't hesitate to delve deeply into the influence of the Lutheran mystic Jacob Boehme on Law's life and writing (and this is no mean feat, considering the fascinating but confusing density of Boehme's body of work). The reader will feel a jolt of self-recognition in these pages and will find help in putting on the mind of Christ (exactly as Law intended). This book cannot be recommended too highly for those with a longing to understand deep transformative Christianity.
