JC Ryle's Advice to Young Men

Taken from, Thoughts For Young Men
J. C. Ryle (1816 - 1900)

John Charles (J.C) Ryle (1816-1900) was an Anglican Bishop in Liverpool England. Educated at Oxford, Ryle was a strong advocate for Evangelical truths, so much so that he was known as the "Evangelical Bishop." Bishop Ryle retired at age 83 and died the following year.
The following is a summary of his outstanding book, Thoughts for Young Men. Ryle’s gentle but straightforward style with an emphasis on Biblical truth is exactly what this generation of young men need.
