J.C. Ryle – Expository Thoughts on the Gospels

While recent blog entries have talked about complete bible commentaries, the Expository Thoughts on the Gospels by J.D. Ryle is a little different.
Rather than a complete commentary on the entire bible, Old Testament, or New Testament, J.C. Ryle’s commentary centers on the Gospels.
This four volume collection is quiet outstanding and is considered another classic.
I do not own this collection, but at $29.95, I could easily pick it up from ChristianBook.com.
While I certainly like complete bible commentaries, there’s certainly something to be said for those commentaries which center on one aspect or part of the bible.
Covering Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, this commentaries certainly centers in on the Life of Christ.
I’ve even seen some multi-volume commentaries which deal with just one book of the bible. I’ll write about one tomorrow.
Here’s the blurb:
Observing the need for biblical understanding in his own parish, this classic commentary from one of England’s most influential evangelical leaders in the 19th century is rich in devotional applications and exposition, which are as relevant today as when originally penned. As a Pastor and reformed scholar, J.C. Ryle writes to the average Christian in a devotional manner, aiming to help readers know Christ better and his understanding of life and people make this a perfect resource for pastors and laypeople alike. This reprint features 4 hardbound volumes.
