John Charles Ryle was an evangelical Anglican clergyman and first Bishop of Liverpool. He was renowned for his powerful preaching and extensive tracts. In The Gospel of Mark Ryle delves into the gospel of Mark giving insight and commentary on this important book of the New Testament. "The volume now in the reader's hands, is a continuation of a work already commenced by "Expository Thoughts on Matthew." "The nature of the work has been so fully explained in the preface to the volume on Matthew, that it seems unnecessary to say anything on the subject. It may be sufficient to repeat that the reader must not expect to find in these "Expository Thoughts," a learned critical commentary on the Gospels. If he expects this he will be disappointed. The work before him makes no pretense to being anything more than a continuous series of short practical expositions."
