Regeneration - Being Born Again

Regeneration - Being Born Again

$9.99

Paperback
An explanation and defence of the doctrine of being 'Born Again.'

John Charles Ryle (1816 - 1900) was the first Bishop of Liverpool, England. After a dazzling sporting career at school and university, poised on the verge of national recognition, he gave it all up to become a minister in the Church of England.

However, his leadership abilities on the field of play stood out and prepared him for the difficult task of being an evangelical leader of a mixed diocese in the most sectarian of English cities.

Throughout his period in office Ryle was respected by his colleagues to the extent that even one of his most strident opponents broke down and wept at the news of his death. He was able to master the difficult task of being firm in his beliefs and loving in his application of them. His gracious spirit is an example to us today.

This is probably why many of Ryle's writings have been continuously in print for over 100 years. Here Ryle explains that divisive, often derided (and misapplied by advertising) term 'born again'. He explains what being 'born again' means, why it is necessary and how you can tell whether you are.

Much of the value of this publication, though, lies in what Ryle writes next. In his gracious yet firm way Ryle devotes the majority of the book to explaining how the objections people have had to the doctrine should be handled and overcome with gentle persuasion. It is a supreme example of the art of persuasion.

A Helpful Treatment on the Vital Subject of Regeneration
4 stars By Dr. Bernard Low, Jun 07 2016
In this small book by J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), the first Bishop of Liverpool, the author discusses what regeneration means, why it is necessary and what are the marks of regeneration. He also deals with objections that people have to this subject. Ryle's treatment of regeneration is at once biblical, practical and pastoral. For the earnest Christian who is concerned whether he is born again, he will find much help from the chapter on marks of regeneration. For pastors who are truly physicians of souls, they will find in Ryle's book much help as they tend to the flock under their oversight.
