Editorial Reviews

'P.G. Stanwood has presented us with a reliable text based upon scrupulous collation of all the editions published during Taylor's lifetime ... Holy Living is in every way an achievement equal to that of Holy Dying; the two treatises are counterparts, each excellent in its kind. We can begrateful to this new edition for increasing our appreciation of a major writer of English prose and a major defender of the potential for good in human nature.'Louis L. Martz, Yale University, Modern Philology
