Bishop J. C. Ryle's Autobiography: The Early Years
2 in stock
John Charles Ryle (1816-1900), first Bishop of Liverpool, was one of the most influential evangelical clergymen of the nineteenth century. A popular platform speaker and prolific tract writer, his books are still widely read across the globe.
Edited by Andrew Atherstone, this critical edition of Ryle's manuscript autobiography, dictated in 1873, is a rich and unparalleled account of the early decades of his life and ministry. Written for his children and never intended for publication, J.C. Ryle's autobiography is essential reading for a proper appreciation of the man behind the headlines, in the years before he reached national and international fame.
This volume also includes many photographs from the Ryle family albums, never before published. Seven substantial appendices examine the Ryle Family Bible, Ryle's schoolboy speeches, his conversion, his earliest evangelical tracts, and his final will and testament.
