: John Charles Ryle (1816-1900) was a prolific writer, a faithful pastor, and a dynamic preacher. This collection of sermons and tracts come from a variety of sources some of which are not quickly accessible. Some of the chapters in this book have been published as tracts. These are rare, short "Helmingham Series" tracts were first published about the middle of the last century, while J. C. Ryle was a Rector at Helmingham, Suffolk. Some of these chapters are sermons on the topic of Heaven. J.C. Ryle offers very practical counsel that is helpful in our pilgrim journey. Most of these sermons were written after losing a loved one. J.C. Ryle was widowed three times (Matilda died in 1847; Jessie died in 1860; Henrietta died in 1889) May the Lord use these sermons and tracts for the comfort of Godâs people. Personally I have found them helpful for those who are nearing the end of their earthly pilgrimage.
