John Charles Ryle (1816-1900), first Bishop of Liverpool, was one of the most influential evangelical clergymen of the nineteenth century. A popular platform speaker and prolific tract writer, his books are still widely read across the globe. This critical edition of Ryle's manuscript autobiography, dictated in 1873, is a rich and unparalleled account of the early decades of his life and ministry. He recalls his youthful pursuit of academic plaudits and sporting prowess at Eton College and Oxford University, before his evangelical conversion at the age of 21. He tells of the devastating collapse of the family bank and the enforced sale of their Cheshire estates, which ended his ambitions to enter parliament. Ryle describes his exploits as a young clergyman, his loves and losses, his evangelical networks, and the deaths of his first two wives. He offers a frank assessment of his joys and struggles, and the reasons behind his crucial life choices. Written for his children and never intended for publication, Bishop J.C. Ryle's autobiography is essential reading for a proper appreciation of the man behind the headlines in the years before he reached national and international fame. This volume also includes many photographs from the Ryle family albums, never before published. Seven substantial appendices examine the Ryle Family Bible, Ryle's schoolboy speeches, his conversion, his earliest evangelical tracts, and his final will and testament. Book jacket.… (mer)

Ever since reading Holiness many years ago, I have been a fan of J C Ryle (1816-1900). I have read many books by him; recently I have read two books about him. The first was Ryle's biography by Iain H. Murray, J.C. Ryle: Prepared to Stand Alone, which was very good. Now I have completed Bishop J. C. Ryle's Autobiography: The Early Years.

Editor Andrew Atherstone prepared the book from the recently-recovered manuscript of Ryle's autobiography, which he wrote for his children. As the title indicates, Ryle covers only about the first half of his life (his children were familiar with it from that point on). As one interested in the Victorian Age generally, and Ryle particularly, I found the book fascinating as the man tells his own story. Ryle went from riches to rags, from nominal Christianity to true faith in Christ, from a would-be lawyer, then banker, to a reluctant minister of the Church of England, only to become one of the outstanding evangelical preachers and writers of his day.

In addition to Ryle's autobiography, the book includes some of Ryle's early tracts, a funeral sermon he preached for a beloved parishioner, speeches from his Eton days, and other artifacts. Perhaps the most delightful element of the book is the many photographs of Ryle, his family, and places he lived and ministered. Many were taken by his third wife Henrietta, an early amateur photographer. Her photos include some of Ryle and others acting out scenes from Christian history and the book Pilgrim's Progress.

I have long been blessed and helped by Ryle's books, so naturally I was fascinated to read of his life. I recommend this book to anyone, but especially to a reader of Ryle. Yes, he ended his ministry and life as the first bishop of Liverpool, but he went through many afflictions and much heartache along the way. His steadfastness in life and ministry inspire and encourage. ( )
