Reading J.C. Ryle on the Gospels

In my preparation to preach from John 4 and Jesus’ encounter with the woman at the well, I decided to read J.C. Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on John’s Gospel. Though first published in 1896, I found Ryle’s insights quite refreshing.

We talk about these dead authors and their substance with so much admiration–and rightfully so.  They didn’t have the myriad of detractors that we have today.  They spent more time in the Word and prayer.  Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on the Gospels are clearly the fruit of such a contemplative and reflective life in the Word.  I highly commend this work.
