After sixty years of ministry, J. C. Ryle’s selected sermons were published in his honor. Varying from doctrinal issues—sin, redemption, regeneration, sanctification—to the practical duties of living the Christian life, Ryle’s sermons are timeless and inspirational.
J. C. Ryle (1816–1900) was educated at Christ Church, Oxford, where he was a Craven Scholar. He was ordained in 1841, and became the first bishop of Liverpool in 1880. Ryle was a prolific writer his entire life, publishing dozens of bestsellers that were translated into many languages.
