Format: Paperback
This book has taught me many things. JC Ryle is a man who loves your soul, he has written in such a way as to build up the readers love for Christ and loathing of his own sin. I would whole heartedly recomend this book to any person who loves his soul, but not to the casual reader. Reading a chapter a week and then meeting up with a friend to chat through it worked very well for me.

It is written in an old fashioned style, but in clear and engaging language. You can save yourself a fortune by getting this and leaving lots of other more recent stuff on the shelf.
This book will instruct your mind, it will search your soul and it will move your heart to worship God.
Worth a place in any Christian's library or bookcase.

If you enjoy the "meat of the word" as it was once called you will enjoy this book. Without any extremes of "fundamentalism" in its worst sense Ryle gives the thoughful reader a feast to ponder on and to practise. This is a book to challenge any believer however long they have been treading the pathway of faith. I have owned a copy of this book for the past fifty years and have enjoyed returning to it every so often. The reader does not have to read consecutively but can if he/she wishes dip into at any place almost as a daily devotional reading. The most benefit however, comes from reading it consecutively as it unfolds its powerfufl and challenging message.

The 19th century in England saw the rise of the Keswick Movement which preached a "Let go and let God" form of santification. It was the view of Keswick preachers in those days that personal holiness was a matter not of taking up the fight against sin, but of consecration: give yourself to God and He will sanctify you. In the face of such false teaching, J.C. Ryle produced this truly remarkable book on the Biblical teaching on personal sanctification. Ryle's book begins with a brilliant introdcutory essay on the scene in his day and then moves on to 20 sermons, all expositions from texts in the Bible on the subject of holiness. It is the best book to come out of England in the 19th century and one of the best books ever. Some of the sermons like Remember Lot's Wife and The Great Example of Moses are stunning. Well worth a read again and again.

People like James Packer often refer back to this book - it is truly a fantastic book - very challenging and thought provoking. It is the only book of this type that I return to again and again. The chapter on Lots wife is truly one of the most thought provoking I have ever read. If you haven't read it - only one thing to suggest - go ahead, I dont think you will be disappointed...

If there was one book any Christian could have, in addition to the Bible obvs, various candidates would be advanced. Historically, it would have been, in English speaking countries anyway, John Bunyan's "Pilgrims Progress". Other books might spring to mind. For me, JC Ryle's "Holiness" would be a strong challenger. Ryle was the (Victorian era) first ever Bishop of Liverpool and so in places the books are a little dated. Not many of us have to wrestle with issues around servants, for example! One or two other Victorian shibboleths like temperance also feature occasionally. The picture of Ryle looks just like a Victorian prophet but surely in 2015 he is hardly relevant to a world of Google and I-Pads? Just why is it that his books and especially his master work "Holiness" are so gripping? His books are certainly very distinctive in style. They have short sentences. They never pull punches. They are personal. They are powerful, challenging, meaty, rich in content and especially very strong on practical application. Many evangelical sermons and books we have today tend to be first rate in their theology but can on occasion fall short in their application of that theology to the everyday life of the reader. Not Ryle. Application is tough because its really the preacher or reader coming down out of the pulpit and saying to the man or women who is hearing the sermon or reading the book "Now, listen, this is what I suggest you should do differently". Its the "so what?" question. In business for example, people can give you vast amounts of data but without conclusions, application, things we should do differently, its all very interesting but without application its academically interesting only. The same in Christian teaching.Read more ›

I hesitate to say this because I have read and dipped into so many books in my journey of faith but if I had to only keep 1 book, in addition to my Bible, this would be a strong contender. Ryle has a straight forward, direct and humble style, he cuts to the heart of what matters and implores the reader to examine themselves and 'make Christ their all'.
This is so refreshing and true life to our souls when compared to so much of the trash that is written today, in the name of Christianity. You can study different chapters, an ideal book for small group discussion.

Im from Liverpool (where Mr Ryle was a bishop for some time) and I'm surprised to find out that such a powerful and insightful book could have been written here!
this is a very thorough and dedicated book to the christian call for holiness. clearly J.C.Ryle was dealing with some contemporary issues that were minimising the importance for holiness and therefore, in part, the book is a product of the times. except for the fact that its seems to me to be massively relevant to todays christians as well. This book helped me understand the relationship between my Justification (by faith in Gods grace alone) and my sanctification (the process in which God makes me more like Jesus) i had certainly been unsure of how to grow in holiness and was very frustrated in the lack of fruit in my own life. "Holiness" then, was like a breath of kind, reassuring but honest, air (the best kind of air) and literally lifted the sails of my love for the Lord. helping me to seek and fight for holiness in my life, all for Gods glory.
On a practical note, its pretty easy to read, similar to a C.S.lewis book (think mere christianity though, not Narnia!) its also full of little gems that are worth underlining and using in essays, sermons, general conversation when you feel the need to encourage holiness in yourself and others.
