At the Pulpits of Liverpool: The Sermons of J.C. Ryle
Herbert studied and began preaching liberal theology to the dismay of his aging father. All that J.
Ryle stood for theologically, his son Herbert stood against. Liberal theology only served to close church doors as J. Ryle had stood for, would face another resurgence decades later. Praise God for the life and ministry of His servant J. Ryle in a day where his memory is once again celebrated. Ryle teaches ministers today to have a thick skin and a soft heart. He also teaches us to be dead earnest about the Gospel and yet not take ourselves too seriously either. We would do well to learn these lessons from a dear brother gone before.

Simplicity in Preaching
J. C. Ryle - Wikipedia
Wikisource has original works written by or about: John Charles Ryle. Bishop of Liverpool — Ryle more than six years ago, and my interest in him was primarily historical. However, as I prepare to defend my dissertation and end this leg of my journey with him, I am absolutely convinced that he has a lot to offer you as a minister-in-training. To say that he lived through a time of tremendous political and theological upheaval is a gross understatement, and his popular and pastoral responses to the rise of Darwinism, higher criticism of the Bible, ritualism Anglo-Catholicism , and theological liberalism are worth considering.
Ryle was also a popular devotional writer and spiritual guide. If you go to the campus bookstore, chances are you will find some of these works on the shelves. Tolle lege!
J. C. Ryle
You will see why they have remained popular with evangelicals since their first publication. Furthermore, Ryle also published a number of works specifically for Christian workers and younger ministers. Chief among them is Simplicity in Preaching. So, why read Ryle in seminary?
The new black
Let me answer this question more specifically by appealing to each of the genres, biography, devotional, and ministerial. First, read about J. Ryle was converted simply by hearing the Scriptures read publicly. In the autumn of , while a student at Oxford, Ryle attended a Sunday morning worship service at a nearby parish church. The second lesson of the morning was taken from Ephesians 2.
When the lector reached verse 8, he slowed down and made some unusual and emphatic pauses. It converted him. It became the theme of his ministry.

It was so central to his life and work that he had it inscribed on his gravestone. You can see it today in the churchyard of All Saints, Childwall, in Liverpool. The next time you read the Scriptures publicly, remember the conversion of J. One of the greatest evangelical leaders of the 19 th century was converted simply by hearing the Word of God read one Sunday morning. Reading the Scriptures publicly, especially in the context of public worship, is no mean task. Second, read Expository Thoughts on the Gospels.
This series is neither a critical commentary nor is it a line-by-line exposition of the four canonical gospels. Ryle wrote them with three purposes in mind: 1 for use in family worship; 2 to aid those who visit the sick and poor; and 3 to aid and encourage private reading of the gospels.
