J.C. Ryle had three goals when writing his Expository Thoughts books: that they be used in family Bible study, a teaching tool for those visiting the sick or poor, or as a companion for private Bible study. They have achieved a higher end to those humble aspirations, and the Expository Thoughts on Mark is a great example. Ryle’s helpful commentary on the Gospel of Mark is filled with wonderful insight and practical observations.
