Individual Titles

The Basis of Premillennial Faith

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: ESC Ministries
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 138

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Although premillennialism continues to be popular today, it is by no means a new doctrine. Rather, because of its solid foundation in biblical truth, premillennialism has been a prominent system of interpretation throughout church history.

Dr. Ryrie begins this book by introducing systems of interpretation and their vital importance in studying prophecy. He then proceeds to trace how premillennialism has its basis in history, hermeneutics, the Abrahamic covenant, Davidic covenant, new covenant, ecclesiology, and eschatology.

Whether you are new to premillennialist teaching, or whether you are interested in a more systematic understanding of its basis in Scripture, the contents of this book will clarify, instruct, and inspire.

Biblical Theology of the New Testament

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: ESC Ministries
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 372

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Biblical theology is concerned with the reasons why something was written as well as with the content of what was written. It not only examines the product but also investigates the procedures and presuppositions that went into writing the Scriptures.

The Word of God is seen in the manner in which it is revealed progressively. The whole is traced in the way God gave the Bible part by part. The perspective is that of the historical setting in which the truth came. The theology of the Bible emerges out of the thought of the writers as seen in their writings; it is never superimposed on those writings.

This book will help you learn the teachings of the New Testament and see that theology is part of the very fabric of the Bible. It is simply and clearly written and will be of benefit to all who want to learn more about the teachings of the Bible.

The Christian & Social Responsibility

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Moody
  • Publication Date: 1982
  • Pages: 117

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Was our Lord’s service social or redemptive? Does Christ not command social service to all men? Should we insist on justice because God is just, or deny our rights because God is longsuffering? How will the believer know which is the proper course of social action at a particular time? Should wealthy persons disperse their possessions?

Dr. Ryrie addresses these and other pertinent questions in his timely book on the church’s social responsibility.

Dr. Ryrie gives insight into how we can be both salt and light in today’s world, talks about the personal priorities of Christ while on earth, and talks about our duties or responsibilities to all men as well as our civic responsibilities.

Understanding this book is a must for those who desire to determine the extent of their involvement in today’s world. It is informative and challenging.

Making the Most of Life

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Moody
  • Publication Date: 1966
  • Pages: 127

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

It’s not easy for a young person to live the Christian life today. Neither was it in New Testament times. The government was corrupt, sin was rampant and open, homes weren’t always godly, and many believers were slaves.

Yet God expects believers, young and old, then and now, to live godly lives. So the New Testament principles must be as workable today as they were then.

Making the Most of Life includes principles to help keep young people on the right track.

The Miracles of Our Lord

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: ESC Ministries
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 192

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

It lies at the heart of our Christian faith—the profound but simple truth that the same power that can turn water into wine can also breathe life into a long-dead corpse.

These are the miracles of Jesus, evidence that he is the Son of God. It’s in the Gospel accounts of his ministry that we discover his never-failing mastery over the forces of sickness and sin, nature and Satan, life and death.

The facts about each of the 35 recorded miracles of Jesus—complemented by Charles C. Ryrie’s biblical research and personal insights—continue to carry a faith-strengthening message to the Lord’s followers today.

Nailing Down a Board: Serving Effectively on the Not-for-Profit Board

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Kregel
  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 96

Are you on a not-for-profit board? A church board? A business board? Or do you approach the thought of such a responsibility with trepidation?

Charles C. Ryrie has served on all sorts of boards, and he has thought much about their great opportunities. He has also noted problems that are common to boards:

  • Finding good members
  • Keeping them when they are found
  • Resolving conflicts
  • Using meeting times efficiently
  • Overseeing financial accountability

The practical advice in this book addresses these and other issues for the novice or experienced board members. The principles are applicable to a wide variety of profit and not-for-profit organizations and ministries. Ryrie gives the reasons for having a board and the ingredients for managing them well.

Neo-orthodoxy

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Walterick
  • Publication Date: 1977
  • Pages: 75

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Exactly what is neoorthodoxy, and how does it affect those who subscribe to its strange and often hard-to-understand tenets? Is it merely a question for theological debate, or does it reach the level of the person in the pew? How can it be recognized? Should we be grateful to Barthianism for delivering the church from the curse of the old liberalism? To seek an answer to these and other questions is the purpose of Ryrie’s book, Neo-orthodoxy.

The Role of Women in the Church

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Moody
  • Publication Date: 1978
  • Pages: 155

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The Role of Women in the Church is a unique book dealing with a subject that has previously received little treatment. It is a useful tool for giving direction to the church for a modern viewpoint of women’s spiritual responsibility which is in keeping with the guidelines laid down by the Bible.

The lessons of history and the teaching of the Bible are two main guidelines for understanding the status of women in the church. The Role of Women in the Church is an inquiry into the practices of the past. The introductory section of the position of ancient Greek, Roman, and Jewish women is followed by a three-part discussion dealing with the effect of Jesus on the status of women during the apostolic age, and their position during the second and third centuries. Here is a timely book dealing with a contemporary subject, looking at it through the words of the Bible.

Ryrie’s Concise Guide to the Bible

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Here’s Life
  • Publication Date: 1984
  • Pages: 163

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

What makes the Bible the same authority for millions of Christians in totally different cultures? How did Christ use the Bible of his day? What about problems in the Old and New Testament? How can we most profitably study the Bible?

The answers to these questions, plus an unusual question-and-answer approach to each book of the Bible, makes this book a unique contribution to an understanding of the Bible.

Recognized for his ability to present significant ideas simply and succinctly, Charles Ryrie has combined many years of teaching the Bible and theology as well as a special interest in collecting unique Bible editions, to produce an invaluable introductory guide to the Bible.

Ryrie’s Practical Guide to Communicating Bible Doctrine

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Broadman & Holman
  • Publication Date: 2005
  • Pages: 94

In this concise and compelling handbook, Ryrie writes to Bible students and practicing pastors alike about the importance of communicating the doctrines of Scripture. He clearly explains why doctrinal truth from the Bible must be a key part of every preacher’s message. Using practical illustrations and applications, Ryrie offers helpful ways of embracing doctrine through the use of major Bible passages, systematic theology, biblical theology, concordances, and more.

Transformed by His Glory

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Victor
  • Publication Date: 1990
  • Pages: 144

Your concept of God can become worn thin by years of familiarity, hard circumstances, or a society that frowns on his uniqueness or even his existence. But when you lay aside these threadbare images and return your gaze to God’s awesome character, you come away not only refreshed but inwardly different.

In this book Charles Ryrie turns your thoughts specifically to the glory of God. It’s a subject little written about and perhaps even less understood, but in his gifted way of making dry theology everyday practical, Dr. Ryrie clearly explains what it is, how it changed the men and women of Scripture, and how it can change you.

If your Christianity hasn’t been making a difference lately, perhaps your idea of God has lost its glory. Allow this book to help you reflect anew on his glory now and to encourage you that one day you will see that glory face-to-face. You won’t be the same tomorrow.

What You Should Know about Inerrancy

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Moody
  • Publication Date: 1981
  • Pages: 109

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Some say that inerrancy is either unimportant, irrelevant, or unnecessary to the faith.

But that is simply not so, says Dr. Charles Ryrie. Belief about the Bible assumes a place of primary importance in one’s doctrinal system. It has to. For if even one part of the Bible is thought to be false, how can any of it be trusted as true?

Through convincing facts and explanations, Dr. Ryrie proves to readers that God did not permit man to divert, misdirect, or erroneously record his message. The Bible, the entire Bible, is inerrant and can be trusted to be totally reliable.

What You Should Know about the Rapture

  • Author: Charles C. Ryrie
  • Publisher: Moody
  • Publication Date: 1981
  • Pages: 118

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Dr. Ryrie delves into the not-yet-fulfilled prophecies regarding the end of the world, explains what the rapture is, and discusses what exactly will happen on the day Christ returns for his church—a day that may come sooner than we think.
