And yet, had this not happened, J. C. Ryle would likely not have entered the clergy and become one of the most influential evangelical leaders of the nineteenth century. From his ministry Ryle went on to publish many important works and vigorously defend the purity of Reformed faith. Most significantly, Ryle's unfortunate circumstances led to a steadfast faithfulness and holiness in his life.
Presented here is a newly repackaged and republished edition of J. I. Packer's brief biography on J. C. Ryle entitled Faithfulness & Holiness: The Witness of J.C. Ryle presented with the great preacher's classic work Holiness.
Admiring Ryle's passion for God's Word, Packer aims to open up the life of this godly man for a contemporary audience. Readers new to Ryle's work will especially benefit from a first encounter with his essay on holiness.
