Item Description...
Ryle writes so that his commentary on Matthew can be read aloud to a group. Unlike many authors he is equally good, read or heard. There are many other fuller commentaries on the Gospels, but no others make such compelling listening- whether it be family, in the neighborhood groups, or over the air- as those of J. C. Ryle.

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.

Working Through the Meat of the Word  Nov 20, 2004
J.C. Ryle's Expository thoughts on the gospel of Matthew is indeed a classic in every way. Ryle is not writing to apease the flesh but to kill it (Romans 6:11). He writes with the true passion that so marked the saints of the 19th century. How we need more Ryle's today in the pulpit and on the floors of our churches seeking God in prayer and true worship.

This work focuses on the gospel of Matthew. Ryle doesn't take too much time to dive into the backgrounds of the text or even the Greek structure but his writing is more devotional in nature. Theologically he is a Calvinist but he avoids hyper-Calvinism and maintains an evangelical faith throughout the book. This book is great devotional reading as you work through the gospel of Matthew.

Oh that these expository thoughts on the gospels were in the top lists of Christian's reading today! Great reading from a great Christian.
Solid food for the soul.  May 27, 1998
J. C. Ryle's Expository Thoughts on the Gospels is solidly Evangelical and Biblical. The expositions are short, and easy to read in a devotional setting. In Ryle's own words,

"In each Exposition I have generally begun by stating as briefly as possible the main scope and purpose of the passage under consideration. I have then selected two, three, or four prominent points in the passage, singled them out from the rest, dwelt exclusively on them, and endeavoured to enforce them plainly and vigorously on the reader's attention." (From the Preface to the Expository Thoughts on Matthew.)

The Expository Thoughts will give you a good grounding in the Gospels. The Banner of Truth edition is a facsimile reprint and the edition I prefer. It has footnotes that are often left out of some of the more "modernized" abridged reprints. Those footnotes can be a gold mine in themselves.
