Volume two of J.C. Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on Luke begins with the Lord’s Prayer. “The substance of the Lord’s Prayer is a mine of spiritual treasure,” writes Ryle. Covering Luke 11–24, Ryle’s thorough examination of Luke serves as a wonderful guidebook for improved comprehension of the Scriptures.
J.C. Ryle (1816–1900) was educated at Christ Church, Oxford, where he was a Craven Scholar. He was ordained in 1841, and became the first bishop of Liverpool in 1880. Ryle was a prolific writer his entire life, publishing dozens of bestsellers that were translated into many languages.
