Book Description

As with all Ryle’s works, Practical Religion is clear, concise and penetrating. It was designed to be a companion to his other books, Old Paths, Knots Untied and Holiness, providing guidance on how the Christian believer is to live. In Ryle’s own words, it ‘treats of the daily duties, dangers, experience, and privileges of all who profess and call themselves true Christians.’

Far from advocating a works-based religion, these papers are all about how a Christian can practically respond to the grace that has been freely given to him in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Ryle was a great enemy of hypocritical and nominal religion, or ‘churchianity’ as he called it. These articles remain a great plea for a real, heartfelt devotion to the Lord in love and service, founded on the great doctrines of Scripture.
No Christian who reads any one of these papers will be left unaffected. ‘Believer in Christ, remember this! Whatever you do in religion, do it well. Be real. Be thorough. Be honest. Be true.’

    Rev. Matthew A. Judd, Memorial OPC, Rochester, NY USA

    Having been a Christian for 24 years and a minister of the gospel for 12 years, I would have to say that I know of no other book outside of Scripture that has blessed and benefitted me as much as this by Mr. Ryle. Convicting, challenging, and comforting! Mr. Ryle has continuously challenged me with the penetrating, straight-forward application of God’s Word and the exemplary manner in which this Word must be powerfully proclaimed. Every Christian should prayerfully read and digest this book at least once in his lifetime (two or three times would even be better). Many thanks to Banner of Truth for putting this out in hard-cover. My soft-cover is coffee stained and dog-eared :-).
