Bayly Lewis Practice of Piety, the
The Practice of Piety, one of the best-selling and most influential devotional books of all time. Its sub-title is Directing a Christian How to Walk That He May Please God. An eminently practical book that gave believers counsel for various phases of life and various parts of the day, Bayly’s Practice of Piety was immensely popular. Two examples show that it was one those “standard works” you could expect to find everywhere: When John Bunyan married his wife, she brought two books with her into the marriage, and one of them was Bayly. And when John Eliot finished translating the Bible into Algonquin for the Native Americans, his next project was to translate Bayly.
