#OctTBR2022 Day 27: “Holiness” by J.C. Ryle.

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What It Is: A 19th-century Christian classic about what it means to live a holy life.

Why I’m Reading It: It’s good to read old books from faithful saints of the past (as already demonstrated in my list so far). This one is one I’ve been meaning to get around to for a while but never quite got past the first couple of chapters. Like the Puritans, Ryle is not one you can rush. You must read slowly and chew completely to get the full benefit. Well, it’s past time for me to start doing so.

Have you read this book? Do you have a favorite book from past centuries that has stood the test of time? Let me know in the comments!
