J.C. Ryle: Practical Religion

John Charles Ryle was born on the 10th of May 1816 at Macclesfield, England in the family of a wealthy banker. Being a fine athlete and a highly educated man, John had promising career opportunities both in educational and political spheres. However, while hearing Ephesians 2 read in church in 1838, he felt a spiritual awakening and choose a path of ordained ministry.

Ryle was an earnest gospel preacher and teacher, as well as a prolific writer. As noted by another bearded man of God, John Ryle “was a controversial leader taking a strong stand for the truth and against error. His writing, like his the rest of his ministry, was both robustly doctrinal and devotional. He labored to help people know the Truth, and live by it.”

John Ryle has left a rich legacy of written works that continue to bless the readers even now. Among the favorites are his Holiness and Practical Religion.

Jonathan Edwards and The Works

Jonathan Edwards was the most eminent American philosopher-theologian of his time. A graduate of Yale University and the president of Princeton, Edwards above all was a fiery preacher, whose sermons such as “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” sparked the Great Awakening in the eighteenth-century America.

After you download and enjoy this book, we do ask you to consider leaving a review for this book on Amazon or Barnes&Noble.

“…Some people actually imagine that the revelation in God’s Word is not enough to meet our needs. They think that God from time to time carries on an actual conversation with them, chatting with them, satisfying their doubts, testifying to His love for them, promising them support and blessings. As a result, their emotions soar; they are full of bubbling joy that is mixed with self-confidence and a high opinion of themselves. The foundation for these feelings, however, does not lie within the Bible itself, but instead rests on the sudden creations of their imaginations. These people are clearly deluded. God’s Word is for all of us and each of us; He does not need to give particular messages to particular people.” ~ Jonathan Edwards

“By Christ’s purchasing redemption, two things are intended: his satisfaction and his merit; the one pays our debt, and so satisfies; the other procures our title, and so merits. The satisfaction of Christ is to free us from misery; the merit of Christ is to purchase happiness for us.”  ~ Jonathan Edwards

“The enjoyment of [God] is the only happiness with which our souls can be satisfied. To go to heaven, fully to enjoy God, is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here. Fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, or children, or the company of earthly friends, are but shadows; but God is the substance. These are but scattered beams, but God is the sun. These are but streams. But God is the ocean.” ~ Jonathan Edwards

‎“Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.” ~ Jonathan Edwards
