  1. My pastor is Bryan Sanders, he was just installed as our new lead pastor a week ago (Bible Baptist Church, Shiremanstown, PA)
    P.S. keep up the good work!!

  2. Great overview of J.C. Ryle! I love Holiness (probably my favorite theology book). I think basically everything in that book is applicable to today.

    Also, I downloaded Piper’s sermon. Thanks for linking to that! Looking forward to listening to it.

  3. Loved this! I’ve been reading Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on the Gospels for my daily devos this year (commentaries that I found at NovelTea Cafe in Truro, ha!) and my heart has been so blessed by his words! Adding Holiness to my list.

  4. Just finished reading Thoughts for Young Men and I have to thank you for showing me this. It is so good, I have difficulty believing that this was written in 1886 and not last year.
