A brief review of Thoughts for Young Men by J.C. Ryle

Jump to Comments

This is must reading for any young man.  Ryle’s exhortation to young men is timeless, succinct (62 pages in this edition), and wise.  The only real qualm that I have with Ryle is that he seems to have a latent gnostic streak with regards to the material world.  (The phrase “immortal soul” shows up quite frequently for such a short written work.)  This is a brief work, so I’ll know better once I start reading Holiness whether I have mischaracterized him.  Grade: A-
