Do You Pray?
A Question for Everybody
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 21st century church. The needs that Ryle identified and that led him to write have not changed!
Do You Pray? challenges all Christians in a day when prayer meetings are in decline and personal serious prayer is increasingly rare. Ryle’s approach is simple and straightforward and easily understood by both young and old.
“Among the few authors a Christian wants as a lifelong friend and helper, J. C. Ryle is certainly one. After sixty years I still read him with the same relish.” — Iain Murray, General Editor, Banner of Truth and author of numerous books on theology and biography
“There’s a clear reason we keep ‘digging up’ Ryle. His writing is always clear. (a 19th century man who writes short sentences!) He’s always going after the jugular vein of your soul, and he’s focused — he just can’t keep his eyes off Jesus. Get a copy of his books and let the nourishment begin – and pick up a spare to put in your guest room.” — Dale Ralph Davis, author of The Word Became Fresh and pastor of Woodland Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi
