About the Author
Ryle's chief aim is to help the reader to know Christ. He also has another object in view. He writes so that his commentaries can be read aloud to a group. There are many other fuller commentaries on the Gospels, but no others make such compelling listening as those of J.C. Ryle.
This along with the other commentaries JC Ryle has written make bible reading so interesting. He writes in laymen's terms.
