About "Absolutely Basic (Great Christian Classics Series)"
Two well-known writers and preachers of the nineteenth century describe the twofold work of God that is needed to make us Christians. Horatius Bonar (1808-1889) explains the work of God that Christ has done for us so that we can be accepted as righteous for ever by God. His book is a great help in appreciating what Christ has done and contains much comfort and encouragement for believers. J. C. Ryle (1816-1900) unfolds the work of God that the Holy Spirit does within us to make us new creatures and children of God. Simply and clearly, he sets out the need to be born again, explains how it happens and what results may be expected. These are updated and shortened versions for the benefit of modern readers.

J C Ryle
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.
