John Charles Ryle’s best known works have been reissued and widely read over many years. The fine qualities of his writings have ensured that his books are still popular and useful. This volume has become a classic work and is known and loved by many throughout the world.

In days when evangelical preachers are accused of being either superficial or dull, we have here a great example of one who was neither of these things. As Bishop Ryle explains and applies his texts with his customary simplicity and directness, the listener will find his conscience pricked and his soul examined. Ryle addresses hard and trying subjects that most modern evangelicals have chosen to ignore: the power and depth of indwelling sin, the necessity of a holy life, the struggle and fight of faith, counting the cost of following Christ—and thats only in the first five chapters. Ryle’s Holiness has become essential reading on this most important subject, and the first chapter, “Sin,” has rarely been bettered.

    " Classic. I will read and reread it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric Molicki | 2/5/2014

    " This is simply a must read desert island book along with the Bible. It is rich and timely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Lazarian | 2/4/2014

    " What Bishop Ryle taught on sanctification, basically elevated my whole view of the power of the Spirit and how He remakes the human the heart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 2/2/2014

    " Read this book a long time ago, one of the very best on the subject. Plan to read this many more times in the future! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trudy | 2/2/2014

    " Fabulous, fabulous book. Ryle has a way of dealing with this issue so that I was convicted rather than feeling like he was judging from on high. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Comis | 1/22/2014

    " Somewhat baptistic in his approach to holiness. But overall, a good butt-kickin' to get up and perform for Christ. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Hyatt | 1/18/2014

    " It's a good book and you would do well to read it. He starts with sin against God, ends with Christ, and in the middle hammers on Holy Spirit driven holiness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex Houston | 1/17/2014

    " This book on the Christian life is a must read. Bishop Ryle's books are pastoral, biblical, and of great value for us all. Another one for the desert island. BTW, Bishop Ryle had a very cool beard! My wife loves this book, think we've given at least two copies away. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Walle | 1/2/2014

    " This was a great book calling us to a life of holiness rather than happiness. Within holiness we can find happiness, but we should have holiness as our chief goal. Very well written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 12/22/2013

    " Human greatness is a lifetime endeavor. JC Ryle breaks down every possible point on which we can become more holy as earth bound creatures. I felt inspired by the beliefs of this simple man from the 1800's. He extends truth without shame and made me anxious to join him in his quest for holiness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 12/2/2013

    " A good book to keep handy and chew on over a long period of time "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Kreps | 11/27/2013

    " An absolute must-read. Theological, doctrinal, devotional, pastoral, evangelistic. The last chapter-"Christ is All" is worth the price of admission alone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Wang | 9/28/2013

    " Must-read for anyone who desires to live a holy life. Not the easiest read but one thing this book does not lack is thoroughness. Left many times contemplating my salvation "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 9/17/2013

    " Dense, but incredibly good. I have to finish this someday. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 7/27/2013

    " This is just fantastic. I'm only in the middle but I want to recommend it. And anything else by J.C. Ryle for that matter. You can find lots of his smaller writings for free online. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy | 7/18/2013

    " Powerful book about the true Christian Life. Written over 100 years ago, but still very relavant today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 5/10/2013

    " Great book. JC covers the topic well and worth a slow reading. I need to read back over it now with the light of the Church I've gained. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larissa | 4/24/2013

    " Biblical perspective on who God is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 3/13/2013

    " Excellent and highly recommended extended meditation upon the continuing life and reign of Jesus in his people by faith through his Spirit of Grace to cultivate a real, visible, life-giving display of his holiness. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wesley Lau | 1/21/2013

    " It is a classic. Although written so many years ago, it is still applicable to the live of every Christian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pete Williamson | 12/28/2012

    " A classic that should be read and discussed by every Christian. "

About the Author

J. C. Ryle (1816–1900) was appointed as the first bishop of Liverpool in 1880 and was the leader of the Evangelical Party in the Church of England for more than half a century. He is highly regarded for his plain and lively writings on practical and spiritual themes; their usefulness and impact have been consistently recognized and remain as wise and relevant today as when he first wrote them.
