0 Reviews

Based on work originally published in 1650 and 1651, this book combines Jeremy Taylor's two most famous writings: *The Rule and Exercises of Holy Living* and *The Rule and Exercises of Holy Dying.* These books are owner's manuals for the soul, describing for readers how to attain virtue, avoid vice, and live a proper Christian life. The book is divided into sections based on which virtue and which vice the reader needs help with. *On Dying* speaks to those who, before they are old and ill, have given some thought to dying and wish to ensure that they pass properly to Heaven. Devout Christians will find this book inspirational and instructional.
