I would not consider him a mystic. Jeanne Guyon was a mystic. I don't put the two in the same group.

I think Law’s writings are good (I have a few of his books). I don’t read any author without my Bible next to it…

I first heard of Law years ago while reading about George Whitefield. Both Whitefield and the Wesleys talked about Law.

My 2 cents…

 Re: William Law ?

I first became acquainted with him through Andrew Murray's writings. Andrew Murray loved him and gleaned much from him. His writings is very straight forward on holiness, maintaining relationship with the Lord. Very sound and very deep. He illustrates and lived a life of witness to our Lord through holiness and prayer. the Word is heavily in his life and writings. a blessed saint to glean from brother

There is a great difference in the books he wrote. The ones he wrote before he was born again are intellectual and without life eg. A Serious Call To A Devout And Holy Life. And then after he was born again you have a book like "An Humble, Earnest, And Affectionate Address To The Clergy" which is full of life and beauty. It has been rewritten by Dave Hunt and called " The Power of the Spirit ". It is a book that needs to be read by everyone that calls themselves Christian to test if they are truely born again or have just a mere intellectual understanding of scripture.
