More About John Charles 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 Christian Leaders of the 18th Century?

A CLASSIC!  Apr 3, 2000
Ryle, though a true doctrinaire Calvinist, was a great Christian writer, soul-winner and preacher who really excelled in the area of historical portraiture.

This book is a classic. The biographies of Whitefield, Wesley (an Arminian ungrudgingly given his due as a great preacher of the Word) and Rowlands are truly profound and uplifting. Space is actually wasted, though, on Augustus Toplapy, when Ryle could have given us a picture of, say, the great John Newton, instead.

Still, this one is a must for those interested in the old gospel, great preahers, or church history. Bravo!
