J.C. Ryle wrote 100+ years ago, but his words still resonate with me as though they were written yesterday. In his book Bible Reading, J.C. Ryle makes a strong case for a renewed passion for every one to step up their time in reading, meditating upon, and living out Scripture.
Chapter after chapter Ryle asks, “I charge you, I entreat you to give me an honest answer. What are you doing with the Bible? Do you read it? How do you read it?” And chapter after chapter he continues to give us fewer excuses for not reading the Bible, and more persuasion to read Scripture in a more meaningful way.
The opening words of this book are about as simple and as profound as anything any one could say about God’s Word: “Next to praying there is nothing so important in practical religion as Bible reading.”
What are you doing with the Bible? Do you read it? How do you read it? This book will help you answer these vital questions.
