: J. C. Ryle, the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool, is renowned to this day for his simple and powerful preaching. His words carry a strength and boldness, yet they are filled with love and pastoral care. His writing has not only endured, but remains popular, showing him as a master of practical Christianity. This volume, The Upper Room, is a collection of his writings, and each stands alone in its power and usefulness. In fact, several of the entries within, such as Duties of Parents, and Thoughts for Young Men, have been published independently as separate booklets, in order to more widely distribute their usefulness. The quality and poignancy of Ryle's writings keep him relevant and desirable even today. For the Christian who desires to grow, no better voice could be heard than the old bishop of Liverpool.
