The Life and Ministry of J. C. Ryle

Today we welcome Iain H. Murray to the program to discuss his new biography, J. C. Ryle: Prepared to Stand Alone. In 1957, Rev. Murray co-founded the Banner of Truth Trust. Ryle (1816–1900) was the first Anglican bishop of Liverpool. He was an ardent defender of Evangelicalism in the face of opposition on several fronts, including the growing Anglo-Catholic movement within his own ecclesiastical context. J. C. Ryle had a gift for clear communication to the working class, and his legacy of exhortation and evangelism continues to speak volumes today.
