Two well-known writers and preachers of the 19th century – J.C. Ryle and Horatius Bonar – describe the twofold work of God that is needed to make us Christians. These are modern-English, updated editions of Bonar’s work The Everlasting Righteousness and Ryle’s work The Christian Race.
Horatius Bonar (1808-1889) explains the work of God that Christ has done for us so that we can be accepted as righteous for ever by God. His book is a great help in appreciating what Christ has done and contains much comfort and encouragement for believers.
J. C. Ryle (1816-1900) unfolds the work of God that the Holy Spirit does within us to make us new creatures and children of God. Simply and clearly, he sets out the need to be born again, explains how it happens and what results may be expected.
