J C RYLE PRACTICAL RELIGION PDF

Please use the Banner of Truth UK site. It was designed to be a companion to his other books, Old Paths, Knots Untied and Holiness, providing guidance on how the Christian believer is to live. Far from advocating a works-based religion, these papers are all about how a Christian can practically respond to the grace that has been freely given to him in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. These articles remain a great plea for a real, heartfelt devotion to the Lord in love and service, founded on the great doctrines of Scripture. No Christian who reads any one of these papers will be left unaffected. Whatever you do in religion, do it well.

Much has been written lately about the potential negative effects of smart phone use and social media. To me, one of the most pressing concerns is that, in our anxious scramble to always keep up with what is new on Twitter and Facebook, we neglect the value of what is old. In particular, I am thinking of the benefit of reading books from the distant past. In our hyper-connected age, even the news from last week seems boring and irrelevant, much less the insights from a book written in the 19th or even 4th century.

One sure way to increase that blindness is to read only new books. Ryle , a 19th century British churchman. Simply put, this is one of the best books I've ever read on the basic principals and practices of living the Christian life.

If it were not a little lengthy pages , I would give this book to every new convert as a simple, clear, profound, theologically sound and practical examination of such topics as Bible reading, love, happiness, sickness, wealth, zeal and the afterlife. The chapter on prayer is the best thing I've read on the subject, and it is certain to increase the desire of any true believer who wants to draw closer to Christ in the private place.

Ryle is maybe best known as the master of the elegant and memorable phrase, such as these from Practical Religion :. One dying thief was saved that men might not despair but only one that none might presume.

Some people have "too much religion to be happy in the world, and too much of the world to be happy in their religion. Prayer will consume sin, or sin will choke prayer. In soul matters fear moderation just as you would fear the plague. Those looking for new ideas will likely not find them in this book, but Ryle has this uncanny ability to examine old gospel truths with such penetrating insight that you end up relishing them like it was the first time you heard them. If your heart is dry and your spiritual fervor flat, and you want to fall in love with the Gospel again, read this book.

Here is a passage from Practical Religion , written in , in which Ryle comments on some of the trendy theological ideas of his day:. Everybody who believes anything has faith! Everybody who thinks anything has the Spirit!

Everybody is right! Nobody is wrong! Nobody is to blame for any action he may commit! The Bible is a very imperfect book! It is old fashioned! It is obsolete!

We may believe just as much of it as we please, and no more! Of all this theology I warn men solemnly to beware. Some things never change. Probably all of us, myself included, need to be encouraged to read more. By the way, it would be a small crime not to mention the Banner of Truth in a blog on this topic. Publishing books by Octavius Winslow and Horatius Bonar would not seem to put one on the fast track to huge profits! But without these authors and their works, the church would be so much poorer.
