Knots Untied: Being Plain Statements on Disputed Points in Religion
by J. C. Ryle
Attempting to “untie some theological knots,” J. C. Ryle’s nineteen essays approach doctrinal controversies of the nineteenth century from an evangelical perspective. Written in Ryle’s customary direct, plain-language, and filled with insightful commentary, this volume is comprised of Ryle’s observations on baptism, regeneration, confessions, the Sabbath, and more. This is a key work for understanding the debates within the English Church after the Reformation.
