James Boswell quoting his close friend Samuel Johnson: "When at Oxford I took up Law's Serious Call to a Holy Life, expecting to find a dull book (as such books generally are), and perhaps to laugh at it; but I found Law quite an overmatch for me, and this was the first occasion of my thinking in earnest of religion, after I became capable of rational inquiry." – Life of Johnson, 3rd. ed., vol. 1, p. 43. ". . . the finest piece of hortatory theology in any language." – ibid, vol. 2, p. 118. See: Printing and the Mind of Man #187.
