Pastor's Bookshelf: A Call to Prayer by J.C. Ryle

Bishop of Liverpool, J.C. Ryle (1816-1900), had a way of putting things and a way of teaching the Scriptures that really just made them snap home.  He held nothing back in his preaching but always laid out plain Scriptural truth with deep application.

That same boldness and passion for the Lord Jesus Christ comes across plain and clear in his tract, "A Call to Prayer".

At only 33 pages in length, this is one of the most powerful works on prayer that I've ever read.  He opens it up simply with one question that drives the rest of his thoughts.  "Do you pray?"

A simple question, yet is there anything that is more intimate in the life of a believer than their prayer life?  You can pick this up from and it is inexpensive as well!  At the time of this post, the book only costs $2.99!
