John Charles Ryle (10 May 1816 – 10 June 1900) was the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool. “From his conversion [in 1837] to his burial [in 1900], J.C. Ryle was entirely one-dimensional. He was a one-book man; he was steeped in Scripture; he bled the Bible.“This is WHY his works have lasted—and will last—they bear the stamp of eternity.Today, more than a hundred years after his passing, Ryle’s works stand at the crossroads between the historic faith and modern evangelicalism."
::cs lewis:: - Somehow this seems to come from life, not literature. He was a sincere Christian, I think? Reminds me how Dad used to say this would be a better world if Christians were more Christ-like. Just sayin'.
Philippians 2:3 Show humility rather than pride. Be humble, and think of others above yourself. For if you have helped a man in need, you are serving the Lord and pleasing Him. He has served you, so serve Him with unending love and faith.
