"I only know it is far easier to be a Christian among singing, praying, sympathising Christians in a public room than to be a consistent Christian in a quiet, retired, out-of-the-way, uncongenial home."
J. C. Ryle wrote his classic on holiness over a hundred and thirty years ago, yet how poignant his words still are for us today. Sadly, we all know how easy it is to appear godly in public, while behind closed doors to continue in our own sin.
This modern English version of Ryle's 1883 book will challenge a new generation of readers to live a Christ-like life. Ryle's timeless wisdom reminds us that holiness shouldn't be cold, distant and unobtainable, but that Christ himself is the root of our godliness. Be exhorted not to simply settle for half-hearted holiness, but to strive to be holy in every area of our lives. Many Scripture references have been updated to NIV from the KJV.
R C Ryle (1816-1900) was appointed as the first Bishop of Liverpool in 1880 and was the leader of the Evangelical wing of the Church of England for more than half a century. His written works have remained in demand for well over a century, being highly valued for their clear and lively style. Ryle wrote on a wide range of themes, and his teachings, both practical and spiritual, remain as fresh and relevant today as when he first wrote them down.
