More About John Charles Ryle, Ryle J. C. & J. C. Ryle

John Charles Ryle Ryle was educated at Eton and Christ Church, Oxford. He was ordained in 1842, eventually becoming Anglican Bishop of Liverpool in 1880 until shortly before his death.

John Charles Ryle was born at Macclesfield and was educated at Eton and at Christ Church, Oxford. He was a fine athlete who rowed and played Cricket for Oxford, where he took a first class degree in Greats and was offered a college fellowship (teaching position) which he declined. The son of a wealthy banker, he was destined for a career in politics before answering a call to ordained ministry.

He was spiritually awakened in 1838 while hearing Ephesians 2 read in church. He was ordained by Bishop Sumner at Winchester in 1842. After holding a curacy at Exbury in Hampshire, he became rector of St Thomas's, Winchester (1843), rector of Helmingham, Suffolk (1844), vicar of Stradbroke (1861), honorary canon of Norwich (1872), and dean of Salisbury (1880). In 1880, at age 64, he became the first bishop of Liverpool, at the recommendation of Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. He retired in 1900 at age 83 and died later the same year.

Ryle was a strong supporter of the evangelical school and a critic of Ritualism. Among his longer works are Christian Leaders of the Eighteenth Century (1869), Expository Thoughts on the Gospels (7 vols, 1856-69) and Principles for Churchmen (1884).

John Charles Ryle was born in 1816 and died in 1900.

Reviews - What do customers think about Are You Ready for the End of Time?

The Night is Nearly Over and The Day is Almost Here  Jun 4, 2008
Except for the dispensational theology, of which I believe Ryle is mistaken when interpreting who "Israel" are in both the Old Testament prophecies and Romans 11, his eschatology is a dynamite. The doctrine of the second advent of the Lord Jesus Christ is indispensably crucial yet sadly often avoided or neglected for at least two reasons; the difficulties associated with the mysteries surrounding the event, specifically in the book of Revelation and the fact irresponsible, or I should say, false teachers came up with an exact date and time of the event itself, the gloom and doom's day that tends to shy people away for concern of being labeled as religious nuts. For those who are familiar with Ryle, he can't be farther from being a doomsday prophet, though his preaching style is forceful as usual, which I understand may make some readers uncomfortable. In a sermon about idolatry, Ryle mercilessly exposed and blasted the Vatican with words whose precision and severity I rarely or never heard,

"... idolatry never yet assumed a more glaring form than it does in the Church of Rome at this very day, ... idolatry is one of the crying sins of which the Church of Rome is guilty. Romanism in perfection is a gigantic system of Mary worship, saint worship, image worship, relic worship, and priest worship, that it is, in one word, a huge organized idolatry" (p. 87, 89).

What every reader should not miss in this volume most importantly is the sermons on the parable of the wise and foolish virgins, the parables of the ten minas and the signs of the times that Paul hinted in the epistle to the Romans, "the night is nearly over and the day is almost here," which come under the sermon titles of "Watch," "Occupy Till I Come" and "What Time is It," respectively. The applications of these expository texts that Ryle pounds on the readers in great details are best summed up as "So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light" and best enjoyed and put to actions with the lessons learned in John Piper's "Future Grace."
