John Charles Ryle (10 May 1816 – 10 June 1900) was the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool. “From his conversion [in 1837] to his burial [in 1900], J.C. Ryle was entirely one-dimensional. He was a one-book man; he was steeped in Scripture; he bled the Bible. “This is WHY his works have lasted—and will last—they bear the stamp of eternity. Today, more than a hundred years after his passing, Ryle’s works stand at the crossroads between the historic faith and modern evangelicalism."
"Behold, we consider blessed those who showed endurance. You have heard of the endurance of Job, and you have seen the outcome of ADONAI—that ADONAI is full of compassion and mercy." Jacob (James) 5:11 TLV
