: In Holiness, JC Ryle speaks to the heart and soul of every man. In a winning, approachable style, he wields the sword of the Spirit like a skillful surgeon, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow. JC Ryle addresses hard and trying subjects which most modern evangelicals have chosen to ignore: the power and depth of indwelling sin, the necessity of holiness, the struggle and fight of faith, counting the cost of following Christ... and that's only in the first 5 chapters! JC Ryleâs treatment of the texts which head the chapters is based on plain interpretation, common-sense exegesis and practical application. He does not side-step the difficult issues, but takes them head on, making Christian theology and the principles of holiness seem so simple, obvious and straight-forward that readers will wonder what other Bible truths theyâve been missing all these years. Christian, read JC Ryle. You will not regret it. He is a man who first and foremost loved the Lord Jesus Christ. This is the vital center of all his teaching and writing and the sole reason for his great power in ministry. Whether you are an erudite scholar or a hard-laboring farmer, a pastor or a layman, a spiritual elder or a babe in Christ--no matter where you are--JC Ryle's writings on holiness are for you. The love of Christ and the faith of this great 18th century saint cling to every page like an aromatic perfume.
