J.C. Ryle stands as a colossus at the junction of two centuries - a hundred years after his death he still stands as an example to church leaders today of how to combine leadership, a firm faith and compassion.  This book chronicles Ryle's upbringing, the hardships he experienced as a result of the sudden failure of his father's bank, and his unexpected entry into the ministry of the church.  The author elaborates on Ryle's journey to become the first Bishop of Liverpool and on his faithfulness to God during a time of great theological upheaval in the Church of England.
 
Ryle was a nineteenth century English Reformed evangelical pastor, author and, for his last twenty years, Bishop of Liverpool. His ministry overlapped other well-known evangelicals, most notably Charles Spurgeon. What set Ryle apart ecclesiastically was his loyalty to the Church of England. Due to the increasing influence of the Oxford Movement, with its return to Catholicism, and the encroachment of liberalism, stemming from German Higher Criticism, the Church of England was a spiritual and theological mixed bag at best. Many of the finest ministers abandoned Anglicanism and joined the nonconformist movement. Ryle stood his ground.
 
This is the story of Ryle’s uncompromising faith and his tireless efforts to lead and reform the Church of England. Because of his stand, Ryle was criticized by all parties: liberals because of his evangelical theology, Anglo-Catholics because of his Reformed views and conservatives because he would not break cleanly with the liberals and Anglo-Catholics. He staked out a precarious position and defended it to the end.

Whether one agrees with Ryle's position or not, he nevertheless was a godly man who lived his life with solid theological conviction. This short biography gives us insight into these things, as well as his personal highs and lows. Russell puts a human face on Bishop Ryle as he details the loss of the family wealth, the death of three wives and one child, and the uncertainty that any of Ryle’s children followed in his evangelical footsteps. Yet, the bishop remained faithful to his Lord until the end of a long life.
