Publisher's summary

"Except you repent, you will all likewise perish." (Luke 13:5)

It is indifference that leaves people alone and allows them to go their own way. It is love, tender love, that warns them and raises the cry of alarm. The cry of “Fire! Fire!” at midnight might sometimes rudely, harshly, and unpleasantly startle a person out of his sleep, but who would complain if that cry was the means of saving his life? The words except you repent, you will all likewise perish might at first seem stern and severe, but they are words of love, and they could be the means of delivering precious souls from hell. 

  1. The nature of repentance: What is it?
  2. The necessity of repentance: Why is repentance needful?
  3. The encouragements to repentance: What is there to lead people to repent?

About the author:

John Charles Ryle (1816-1900) graduated from Eton and Oxford and then pursued a career in politics, but due to lack of funds, he entered the clergy of the Church of England. He was a contemporary of Spurgeon, Moody, Mueller, and Taylor and read the great theologians like Wesley, Bunyan, Knox, Calvin, and Luther. These all influenced Ryle’s understanding and theology. Ryle began his writing career with a tract following the Great Yarmouth suspension bridge tragedy, where more than 100 people drowned. He gained a reputation for straightforward preaching and evangelism. He travelled, preached, and wrote more than 300 pamphlets, tracts, and books, including Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, Principles for Churchmen, and Christian Leaders of the 18th Century. Ryle used the royalties from his writing to pay his father’s debts, but he also felt indebted to that ruin for changing the direction of his life. He was recommended by Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli to be Bishop of Liverpool where he ended his career in 1900.

Yet another excellent and practical book by Ryle.

Great topic, very useful for self application or helping counsel others as they wrestle with the concept of true repentance. Ryle is, as always, accessible, practical, and clear. Overall helpful and encouraging

Scripture Based Commentary

Content was written in the 19th century which does not mean that it is not applicable today. If you are breathing and living on earth then you qualify as being a sinner daily. This book is filled with scripture that enlightens and causes one to ponder if you really are worthy of Heaven.

Very Clear Presentation!!

I have read The True Christian, and because of that book and the style in which he presents his subject, he is a valuable part of my christian growth. Highly recommend this quick to the point book on true Christian repentance.
