Expository Thoughts on the Gospels, John Volume 1, J.C.Ryle
The more I read of Ryle's Expository Thoughts on the Gospels the more that I am convinced that no Christian home should be without a set of these devotional commentaries on the gospels. With each volume Ryle seems to crank up the intensity of comments. This first volume on John's gospel only covers the first six chapters of the gospel. Ryle's comments are as usual pithy and heart warming. But this volume takes his notes to a whole new level. Often in this volume the footnotes exceed the commentary. But even the notes, which are his gleanings of his reading are filled with a host of good things.
Forget the perfume, aftershave or whatever this coming season of present exchanging and buy something that will last and make a real difference.
