Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


This book is the first volume in a two-volume devotional set. While this volume offers readers advice concerning how to live a virtuous Christian life, its partner volume, Holy Dying, seeks to provide insight into how Christians can prepare themselves for eternity. Holy Living is highly practical; along with discussions of theology and moral instruction, it contains modeled prayers geared towards implementing faith in practice. Taylor's work has received praise not just for its devotional merit, but also for its literary prowess. Both John Wesley and Samuel Taylor Coleridge held Taylor's achievements in equally high regard. Today, Taylor's practical wisdom still reads like prose poetry.
