I Heartily Endorse It " .... and strongly commend it to both Christian leaders and fathers, not to mention older and younger men alike."-John MacArthur, Jr. "Ryle Is Magnificent There's no other word for it. ...are you brave enough to face hard-hitting truth and have God search your heart on things that matter most? Then Ryle is the man for you Do yourself a favor -read this and think about what you read."-J.I. Packer
There are four great temptations that plague most young men: sloth, lust, love of pleasure, and peer pressure. J.C. Ryle--the last of the great Puritans--tackles each of these subjects with a tenderness and tact which is unsurpassed. If it was difficult to be a young man in the days of the nineteeth century when Ryle first penned Thoughts for Young Men, it is all the more difficult to be a young man in the twenty-first century world of image-overload, radical individualism, and rampant sensuality. Thoughts for Young Men remains to this day the most relevent and helpful book on the subject in print.
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.
