Item Description...
J.C. Ryle writes about one of his favourite themes——the Holy Bible. In this booklet he defends the doctrine of inspiration and then makes application by charging the reader to search the Scriptures. As only Ryle could say, “It is still the first book which fits the child's mind when he begins to learn religion, and the last to which the old man clings as he leaves the world.”

More About J. C. Ryle

John Charles Ryle Ryle was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford. He was ordained in 1842, eventually becoming Anglican Bishop of Liverpool in 1880 until shortly before his death.

John Charles Ryle was born at Macclesfield and was educated at Eton and at Christ Church, Oxford. He was a fine athlete who rowed and played Cricket for Oxford, where he took a first class degree in Greats and was offered a college fellowship (teaching position) which he declined. The son of a wealthy banker, he was destined for a career in politics before answering a call to ordained ministry.

He was spiritually awakened in 1838 while hearing Ephesians 2 read in church. He was ordained by Bishop Sumner at Winchester in 1842. After holding a curacy at Exbury in Hampshire, he became rector of St Thomas's, Winchester (1843), rector of Helmingham, Suffolk (1844), vicar of Stradbroke (1861), honorary canon of Norwich (1872), and dean of Salisbury (1880). In 1880, at age 64, he became the first bishop of Liverpool, at the recommendation of Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. He retired in 1900 at age 83 and died later the same year.

Ryle was a strong supporter of the evangelical school and a critic of Ritualism. Among his longer works are Christian Leaders of the Eighteenth Century (1869), Expository Thoughts on the Gospels (7 vols, 1856-69) and Principles for Churchmen (1884).

John Charles Ryle was born in 1816 and died in 1900.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Absolutely outstanding read - convicting and encouraging!  Apr 30, 2007
Do you take your Bible study seriously - if you answer is yes or no, you need to read this outstanding book by J.C. Ryle, Bishop of Liverpool who passed away more than a hundred years ago, but whose writing jumps off each page with relevance and conviction still to this day. If you don't take God's Word seriously, Ryle has some great arguments as to why you should - for example, knowledge of biblical truth is necessary for salvation, and no book can compare to what the Bible has done to literally transform the world and the condition of mankind. If you are a follower of Christ and your Bible study time is less than productive, routine, and dry, try reading Ryle's encouragement as to why the Bible is so often neglected and misused and why all true followers of God must love God's Word.

This short 63 page book packs quite a challenge for every reader to take seriously the study of this amazing book we call the Bible. Ryle claims that there, indeed, is no other book like the Bible - no other book can challenge a man more, equip a man more, or teach a man more than the Bible. No other book was written like the Bible and no other book must be read like the Bible must be read, studied, memorized and meditated upon.
A Quick but Thoughtful Read  Jul 27, 2004
JC Ryle shows again why he is a lasting influence on Christianity with his timeless writing. He is not difficult to understand and his passion for the subject is clear through his writing.
Ryle not only thoughtfully explains why we can depend on God's Word as inerrant, but in what may be the best section of this small book, he explains why it is so necessary for a Christian to dedicate themself to this life changing book. He explains the consequences of not reading it and the benefits of a dedicated life.
So many more people like JC Ryle are needed today. The world needs more people committed to reading and cherishing God's word, instead of spending their thoughts on fleeting and inconsequential thoughts. JC Ryle will challenge any reader to dedicate themselves in the same manner that his life displayed his thirst for God's Word.
excellently and plainly written  Jul 19, 2003
this book is a very easy read. there are only about 60 pages but they are absolutely packed full of information and inspiring insights. if you are wanting to learn more about the bible and wanting to know how the bible can be proven to be the inspired word of God, as well as learning more how to read it, this is a book that you must check out. and suprisingly to me J.C. Ryle wrote this in a very understandable manner in very simple english.
