A CLASSIC OF CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS
“J.C. Ryle is an evangelical champion. One of the bravest and best of men.” —Charles Spurgeon
“Ryle, like his great masters, has no easy way to holiness to offer us, and no ‘patent’ method by which it can be attained; but he invariably produces that ‘hunger and thirst after righteousness’ which is the only indispensable condition to being ‘filled.’” — D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
“…this book is simply the best of Ryle the Puritan-type pastor. Real Christians will find it a gold mine, a feast, a spur and a heart-warmer, food, drink, medicine, and a course of vitamins, all in one.” — J.I. Packer
JOHN CHARLES RYLE, D.D. (10 May 1816 – 10 June 1900) was the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool. He was educated at Eton and the university of Oxford, where his career was unusually distinguished. Ryle was a strong supporter of the evangelical school and a critic of Ritualism. He was a writer, pastor and an evangelical preacher. Among his longer works are Christian Leaders of the Eighteenth Century (1869), Expository Thoughts on the Gospels (7 vols, 1856–69), Principles for Churchmen (1884). Ryle was described as having a commanding presence and vigorous in advocating his principles albeit with a warm disposition. He was also credited with having success in evangelizing the blue collar community.
