Many Christian parents wish their children could sit under the weekly ministry of a pastor as faithful to the Word of God as J.C. Ryle. This devout minister was one of the most beloved figures of 19th-century England, and never was there a clearer or more gifted communicator of the truths of the Bible. Ryle used to bring an occasional sermon just for the little children of his church.
This is a collection of those sermons – delivered with an ease of style, so that the message still can’t be missed as your children read them today. Simple, but never shallow, Ryle takes a child by the hand and guides him into deep and great truths in ways that few adults know how to do today.
Ryle’s children’s sermons in this volume include:
* The Two Bears (2 Kings 2:23-24)
* Children Walking in Truth (2 John 4)
* Little and Wise (Proverbs 30:24-28)
* No More Crying! (Revelation 21:4)
* The Happy Little Girl
* Little Things
* Seeking the Lord Early (Proverbs 8:17)
As a sample – J.C. Ryle begins his first story this way:
“I am going to tell you a story about a good man, two bears and some children. It is a story out of the Bible, and so you may be sure that it is all true. Stories in other books are often only make-believe, and tell us things that never really happened. Stories out of the Bible, you must remember, are true, every word. Never forget that!”
