Description

Faithfully abridged, J. C. Ryle's iconic work Holiness is presented here for a modern audience. When writing this piece in the 19th century, Ryle was troubled by the worldliness which had infiltrated the church. He saw a neglect of holy living and recognised that this disease needed to be addressed. Two centuries later, this practical and insightful book is desperately relevant and helpful to anyone with a willingness to follow Christ wholeheartedly.

Reviews

It gives me great joy to commend this rewritten and abridged version of Ryle's writing on this subject for a new generation of readers. It will inform your mind, warm your heart and strengthen your will, knowing that God's promised Holy Spirit continues to empower the saints for service to their King.

Glenn N. Davies, Archbishop of Sydney, Anglican Diocese of Sydney


J. C. Ryle's concern in the 19th century that many Christians are concerned with "politics, or controversy, or party spirit, or worldliness" instead of godliness is just as relevant today-if not more so. Ryle shows that truly encountering the free grace of God will compel us to fight for growth in personal holiness. This abridged version will make Ryle's classic work even more accessible to a wider audience.
