As relevant today as it was 130 years ago, his biblically based masterpiece focuses on the daily details and difficulties of holy living and exhorts believers to strive after sanctification, not passively wait for it. 418 pages, softcover from Hendrickson.

Publisher's Description

J. C. Ryle’s Holiness is a lost treasure, written by one of the great Anglican priests and writers of the nineteenth century. Hendrickson reintroduces this classic text, largely unavailable today, on living a Christ-like life. Holiness is considered to be one of the most profound books on discipleship in the English language. Christians have recognized anew the critical importance of discipleship and spiritual formation to the life of the individual believer, the local church and to the Kingdom of God. Ryle’s Holiness ranks among the core library of teachings on being a disciple of Jesus Christ.

In this book, Ryle encourages the reader into a life of holiness, drawn completely from the Bible and not from contemporary books or preachers, or from any of the fads that were popular during his lifetime, much as they are today or in any era. He is writing about personal, or private, holiness, the life we live behind closed doors with our families and closest friends.

"I have had a deep conviction for many years that practical holiness and entire self-consecration to God are not sufficiently attended by modern Christians in this country. Politics, controversy, or party-spirit, or worldliness, have eaten out the heart of lively piety in too many of us. The subject of personal godliness has fallen sadly into the background."
J. C. Ryle

Author Bio

J. C. Ryle (1816-1900) was the first Anglican Bishop of Liverpool, England. Thoroughly evangelical in his doctrine and uncompromising in his principles, Ryle was a prolific writer, vigorous preacher, and faithful pastor. The son of a wealthy banker, he was destined for a career in politics before answering a call to ordained ministry. In his diocese, he exercised a vigorous and straightforward preaching ministry, and was a faithful pastor to his clergy, exercising particular care over ordination retreats. He formed a clergy pension fund for his diocese and built over forty churches. Despite criticism, he put raising clergy salaries ahead of building a cathedral for his new diocese. Ryle combined his commanding presence and vigorous advocacy of his principles with graciousness and warmth in his personal relations. Vast numbers of working men and women attended his special preaching meetings, and many were led to faith in Christ.

    Outside of the Bible, this is the only book over 400 pages I have ever read. Practical Religion by JC Ryle will be my next. Holiness Written in 1877 is timeless because it speaks of the Love and Gace of God and how we must fight to embrace these gifts and in return glorify God with our lives. It also speaks of How sin holds us back, that there is a cost to our love of the world and our selfishness. And that is only two of the chapters. The book also has a short biography.--"True holiness does not consist merely of believing and feeling, but of doing and bearing" JC Ryle

    What a timeless masterpiece! A transcendent work by great saint. The opening chapter on sin is one of the best I've read. Compares easily with works by Pink who I also admire and read. Chapter after chapter of understandable exposition for the young and mature, with brilliant application. This will help your walk with Christ! Recommend it highly!
