Holy Living

Overview

For more than 300 years this classic of Anglican spirituality has been a source of practical help for Christians.

Overview

For more than 300 years this classic of Anglican spirituality has been a source of practical help for Christians. Written during the Commonwealth period of English history (the year after the execution of Charles I), Holy Living was originally intended as a spiritual guide for a godly family whom Taylor served as chaplain. In the book he addresses those in all walks of life, high and low, with great plainness, basing his call for a holy life on the great love and mercy of God our Creator and Redeemer.

The book was an early influence in the life of John Wesley, and its repeated publication since it first appeared is evidence of its timeless worth. This version has been "mildly modernized" to make it easier for present-day readers to enjoy it.
