I read this a while ago now but can recall that it seemed to contain a great deal of plainly stated truth that somehow Christians ( I include myself in this term and what follows ) all too easily forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic On Christian Living For The Ages 23 May 2011
By Joseph J.Adrian - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Walking With God is an abridged version(first published in 1995)of J.C.Ryle's 'Practical Religion'.It consists of a series of articles on various practical subjects of the Christian faith.
In the first chapter 'Self Examination' Pastor Ryle asks ten searching questions to help the reader gage their spiritual condition.A few of the questions are:Do you ever think about your spiritual condition at all?,Have you experienced the reality of conversion to God?,Do you know anything of living the life of habitual fellowship with Christ?The questions are followed by a paragraph of commentary provoked by the questions.
In the third chapter 'Reality' five questions are asked such as:What views of sin does your Christianity produce? and What fruit does your Christianity bear in your heart and life? Each chapter ends with a concluding exortation of one or two pages.
The chapter on prayer is one of the most helpful chapters to be found anywhere on this subject.The author writes p.35-36 "Diligence in prayer is the secret of eminent holiness. ...why are some so much holier than others?I believe the difference in nineteen cases out of twenty arises from different habits about private prayer."
Bishop Ryle's style is direct,uncomplicated yet profound and searching.He observes in the chapter on 'Happiness' p.61-62 "What are our deepest needs?Not simply those of the body!Man has a mind and a conscience.He has an inner sense that this life is not all:There is a life beyond the grave.It is not only his bodily needs that must be satisfied ,but the needs of his soul and his conscience as well." That is why those who seek true happiness just by taking care of their body and sensual desires never find true happiness. The soul must be satisfied as well for a person to know true happiness and that cannot be found by simply pursuing the things of this world and ignoring 'spiritual realities' and the world to come.
J.C.Ryle's 'Practical Religion' is a classic for the ages on practical aspects of the Christian life in a fallen world.The abridged version 'Walking With God' published by Grace Publications and prepared by Gilbert Mcadams retains the substance and vitality of the unabridged work.It should have great usefulness for the Lord's people for many years to come.May our Sovereign God be pleased to give it a wider hearing(for His glory)which it so richly deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars First things must come first 8 Jan. 2002
By Joe Lehman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Browsing a Christian bookstore is both encouraging and distressing. Well-stocked aisles are wonderful testimony that believers crave Biblical perspective on dozens of subjects such as marriage, money, leadership, emotional wellness, household management, education, and so forth. But one wonders if all this interest in Christian things distracts us from Christ himself. Would we need so much advice on so many subjects if we were solidly grounded in THE Book?
The answer lies in yet another book! "Walking With God," compiled from writings by J. C. Ryle, convincingly explains that first things must indeed come first. Those first things--the foundational disciplines and hallmark attitudes of a Christian life--are succinctly addressed in 19 brief chapters further divided into short sections. The theme of the first chapter, "Self-Examination," suffuses the entire book.
Ryle's writing style is forceful and simple. He has a special talent for leading the reader to compare his own spiritual state directly to the ideals revealed by scripture. So led, the reader confronts the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. Certainly that was the effect on this reader.
I found the chapters "Prayer," "Bible Reading," "Zeal," and "Heirs of God" most convicting. Here is some of Ryle's crystal-clear, compelling prose:
· "Some people complain that the Bible contains many things that are hard to understand. This is perfectly true, but it is no reason to stop reading it. The fault lies in our understanding, not in the Bible itself, and it is only as we continue to read it that we shall understand more.... It would be extremely foolish to ignore what we can understand because of the parts which are difficult."
· "Prayer will choke sin, or sin will choke prayer. When I remember this and then look at men's lives, I believe that few people pray."
· "Perhaps you are someone who loves and believes the Bible, yet you don't read it very much. You are likely to get little comfort from the Bible in times of need. And you are never likely to be firmly grounded in the truth. Moreover, you are likely to make big mistakes in life...."
But Ryle, an Anglican pastor who died in 1900, goes beyond instilling in the reader an urgent need to repent and deepen his walk with God. He drives home the truth that the proper response to grace is thankfulness and obedience, and then he links this to our joy and freedom from sin's bondage through Christ's atoning sacrifice.
A most remarkable aspect of "Walking With God" is Ryle's ability to reach Christians and unbelievers alike with an economy of words. His warnings to the lost are seamlessly intertwined with exhortations to believers. Mature Christians will not lose interest while Ryle addresses the unsaved, and those who have yet to respond to God's call will not be put off by jargon or deep theology. Penetrating questions at the end of most chapters target those of varying levels of spiritual development.
Like myriad other Christian books, this one alone will not save the unsaved or renew a Christian's heart. But "Walking With God" can be a powerful tool of the Holy Spirit to accomplish just that.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent practical guide to its subject 24 Oct. 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
J.C. Ryle (the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool) was renowned for his clear, practical writings. "Walking With God" is an abridged version of Ryle's "Practical Religion" in modern English. In clear, simple language it covers many aspects of day-to-day Christian living: not only prayer and Bible-reading, but issues such as happiness, love, zeal and the place of self-examination. As Derek Prime says in his Foreword, "Both Christians and those seeking the truth about God and his Son Jesus Christ will find instruction, challenge and encouragement."
"Walking with God" is the thirteenth in an on-going series of easier-to-read abridgments of important Christian books from the past. A series well worth collecting!
