Short Desription

A unique one-volume selection of Samuel Johnsonâ??s writings on spiritual and moral topics provides an unusually inspiring portrait of the man and his thought.

Most readers know Dr. Johnson (1709â??1784) as the formidable compiler of his famous Dictionary and as the witty conversationalist portrayed in Boswellâ??s Life. By contrast, this bookâ??which draws on little-known unsigned sermons he wrote for hire for clergy friends, his private prayers and devotions, essays, poems, diaries, letters, and even key definitions from the Dictionaryâ??offers a rare opportunity to discover Johnsonâ??s rich insight and consoling spirituality gathered in one place. Boswell observed that "He was a sincere and zealous ChristianÃ?. He was steady and inflexible in maintaining the obligations of religion and morality; both from a regard for the order of society, and from a veneration for the Great Source of all order." This Vintage Spiritual Classics Original opens a window on the moral universe of the leading English writer of the eighteenth century.
