Sintesi dell'editore

John Charles Ryle’s best known works have been reissued and widely read over many years. The fine qualities of his writings have ensured that his books are still popular and useful. This volume has become a classic work and is known and loved by many throughout the world.

In days when evangelical preachers are accused of being either superficial or dull, we have here a great example of one who was neither of these things. As Bishop Ryle explains and applies his texts with his customary simplicity and directness, the listener will find his conscience pricked and his soul examined. Ryle addresses hard and trying subjects that most modern evangelicals have chosen to ignore: the power and depth of indwelling sin, the necessity of a holy life, the struggle and fight of faith, counting the cost of following Christ - and that’s only in the first five chapters. Ryle’s Holiness has become essential reading on this most important subject, and the first chapter, “Sin”, has rarely been bettered.

J. C. Ryle (1816-1900) was appointed as the first bishop of Liverpool in 1880 and was the leader of the Evangelical Party in the Church of England for more than half a century. He is highly regarded for his plain and lively writings on practical and spiritual themes; their usefulness and impact have been consistently recognized and remain as wise and relevant today as when he first wrote them.

A spiritual classic

Although written in 1879 the truth it contains is unchanging. Saying that, there are some words, phrases and thinking that differ from today hence not 5 stars. The narrator is excellent in that you imagine the author would read the text very similarly. He's quiet but with good diction and variation of tone

Thankyou J.C.Ryle and Thankyou Ralph Cosham whose voice I have come to love

J. C. Rule speaks to us in the voice of true christian doctrine from well over 100 years ago. It is a very good reminder for a modern Christian of the basics of our faith. He is uncompromising with lukewarmness. Every word he speaks is based on bible truth.

A really good book for reflection

I really enjoyed this book as it helped me to reflect on where I am spiritually and to challenge my complacency in some areas of my Christian walk.
