John Charles Ryle's best known works have been reissued and widely read over many years. The fine qualities of his writings have ensured that his books are still popular and useful. This volume has become a classic work and is known and loved by many throughout the world. In days when evangelical preachers are accused of being either superficial or dull, we have here a great example of one who was neither of these things. As Bishop Ryle explains and applies his texts with his customary simplicity and directness, the listener will find his conscience pricked and his soul examined. Ryle addresses hard and trying subjects that most modern evangelicals have chosen to ignore: the power and depth of indwelling sin, the necessity of a holy life, the struggle and fight of faith, counting the cost of following Christ?and that's only in the first five chapters. Ryle's Holiness has become essential reading on this most important subject, and the first chapter, ?Sin,? has rarely been bettered.… (more)

This is a book that shows what a serious Christian life should look like, why one should aim for such a life, and how to go about it. It's just as relevant today as it was back in 1879(?), if not more so.

Ryle is a bit insistent on the Anglican church (I suppose one should be convinced in their own mind), but his concern for true core matters makes it still very useful for people of other reformed persuasions. I highly recommend it. ( )
