Product Description

About the Author

Bishop J.C. Ryle (1816-1900) was born in Macclesfield. He was educated at Eton and Oxford, and became the first Anglican Bishop of Liverpool. One of the strongest defenders of the evangelical reformed faith within the Church of England, he was a prolific author, and wrote over 200 evangelical tracts, many of which were translated into foreign languages.

 

Publisher's Description

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.

 

Endorsement

The Bishop JC Ryle probably wrote these expository thoughts over a 100 years ago. But his comments on the text are timeless and very practical. He has a wonderful gift of being able to glean the messages and the points in each scripture. And he is a master at applying the scriptures to comtemporary life.
Having said that, like all other expositions of holy writ, you need to use Ryle's work judiciously. Every once in a while, he brings out points in a passage that may not be salient for the needs of your sermon. And he sometimes divides passages into smaller sections when you may choose to preach the larger section. But these are minor points. I can think of a number of times when my brain was fried and Ryle provoked my thinking and gave me some seminal expository thoughts. And that's exactly what the preacher needs.
