Living & Serving in Light of the End

Preserving the Gospel and Gospel Churches

I am really looking forward to this series as soon as my current iPod load clears up, and then I will post more about it.

Biography of J. C. Ryle

There isn’t a whole lot of material on the life of Bishop J. C Ryle. ┬áThis biography of Ryle, by Bart Carlson of Grace Church, Downingtown, Pennsylvania, is a welcome voice on the life of this man who has greatly contributed to the church.

What you may not know, is that Ryle was marginalized within the Anglican church for taking strong stands to preserve the Gospel. He was a simple, country preacher whose writings have been cherished by many Christians to this day, and are still in publication. Many are considered classics, such as Holiness, Thoughts for Young Men, A Call to Prayer, and his Expository Thoughts on the Gospels series.

Bart Carlson has given us a wonderful biographical sketch of this impactful preacher.
