AN APPEAL To all that Doubt

by William Law


William Law saw many changes during his lifetime: the laws and authorities of his British homeland underwent a major shift, he switched from one career to another, and his personal spiritual philosophies evolved dramatically over time. Among his many writings, Law wrote polemical tracts, practical devotional books, and, later in his life, mystical reflections. His work influenced some of the greatest minds of the 18th century, including Samuel Johnson, George Whitefield, and John and Charles Wesley. An Appeal to all that Doubt the Truths of the Gospel was the last piece he published before his shift toward mysticism nine years later. As well as a devotional book, it serves as a work of apologetics to the lay reader. Law defends the central doctrines of the Christian faith. His defense culminates in declaring the necessity of salvation for all people, calling them to repent and accept Christ’s love.
