Review: Knots Untied – J. C. Ryle

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Bishop Ryle shows, within the first few chapters of this short book alone, that he had more testicular fortitude in his little finger than most of the clergy in Church of England today possess collectively. Bishop Ryle writes plainly and directly, leaving no room for slackers in Biblical doctrine and its application unto the church.

Although specifically Anglican in his discussion of bishops, the XXXIX Articles, and the Book of Common Prayer, the vast majority of this work explaining and clarifying points of what the bishop calls ‘evangelical religion’ is cross-denominational. However, that being said, this book, I feel, should be used by many in the Anglican communion to recover roots of the denomination that in so many places is crumbling around them.
