J C RYLE was a faithful evangelical Christian and prolific writer as well as Bishop of Liverpool; his larger works such as Holiness and Practical Religion have never been out of print since they were written in the later nineteenth century. But Ryle also wrote shorter works that are of great value. In this new series these have been lightly updated and produced for the twenty-first century church. The needs that Ryle identified and that led him to write have not changed! Thoughts for Young Men is tremendously important: the changes in society have led to young men being marginalised and many are far more interested in the latest online games than Christian faith. Ryle challenges young men to take their rightful place in God’s plan.
