Ryle's chief aim is to help the reader to know Christ. He also has another object in view. He writes so that his commentaries can be read aloud to a group. There are many other fuller commentaries on the Gospels, but no others make such compelling listening - whether it be in the family, in neighbourhood groups, or over the air - as those of J. C. Ryle.
"Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men" - Mark 1:17
Written by a young minister at just 22 years of age, this is a clear and vigorous challenge to preachers and laymen to remain persistent in sharing the gospel with unsaved people. The book is split into two parts:
1. The promise of duty: How does Christ make men 'fishers of men'? Why are unconverted men compared to fish under water? In what ways are ministers fishers by office?
2. How may I come by this art? What following Christ supposes and implies. In which way is Christ to be followed?
This is a classic explanation of the Puritan approach to evangelism, which is also an encouragement for anyone explaining the gospel to someone else.
Available as a free PDF booklet download from Preach The Word.
