Product Information

''A precise guide to the daily duties, experiences, privileges and responsibilities of professing Christians'' (Cyril J. Barber, The Minister’s Library)

Bishop Ryle was very active in guiding Christians of all denominations to apply the Scriptures to their daily lives. He had previously written two volumes
to advance this purpose: Knots Untied; Holiness.

This volume is intended to be a further application of his book on Holiness.
It is impossible to present the value of this book in a page. Ryle has chapter after chapter of invaluable instruction, much of it in the form of questions.

Some of the chapters are these:
1. Self-inquiry. We must examine ourselves to make sure you are in the faith (2 Cor. 13:5) How are you doing? What are you doing? Do you see holiness developing in your life?

2. Self-exertion. Have you striven to enter in at the ''strait gate''? Have you gotten beyond this point? Are you using your new state in a way to learn
to grow in grace?

3. Have you considered carefully whether your salvation is real? Is it proving to be genuine, sincere, honest, and thorough? What is the day-today character of your Christian life?

4. Do you keep in daily touch with your Lord? We are told to ''pray without ceasing,'' and that certainly does not mean a mere feeble petition to God now and then. Pray and enjoy God’s presence, for He will through prayer make Himself known and felt, enrich your soul and heart.

5. Do you ''search the Scriptures''? There is no growing in grace and in the knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ without reading the Bible through and through. It is the guidebook given by God’s love to you that you may experience all the loveliness, joyfulness, that the Book engenders.
There is no true knowledge of God, and of His plan for you, outside the Bible.

6. Are you presenting yourself at the Lord’s table? Is this not a time when you must determine within your soul whether you are worthy to partake of communion with Him in remembrance of your Savior God?

7. What about charity in your life? Do you know why charity is called ''the Queen of Christian Graces''? Nothing proves the sad condition of fallen mankind than the lack of charity. Nothing can more readily demonstrate love for God and man than personal charity.

Chapters on Zeal, Happiness and how to obtain it; the deadness of formality, the deadliness of friendship with the world; Riches and Prosperity, which are the true spiritual values; Who is your best Friend; do we not need a friend in
need?; What about your participation in the family of God?; Where will you be when the Great Separation takes place, below or above, in Heaven or in Hell?

Ryle (1816-1900) was a Bishop (1880-1898) in the Anglican Church in the nineteenth century, one of the bright lights of that communion for all time. Ryle’s tracts and books were powerful, and have energized many souls. And they are still doing so even today. 336 pages, blue linen hard cover library binding
