“The Frank and Manly Mr. Ryle” — The Value of a Masculine Ministry

Gavin MacKenzie

At the 2012 Desiring God Conference for Pastors, John Piper presented a biographical study of J. C. Ryle, the bishop of Liverpool titled: "The Frank and Manly Mr. Ryle" - The Value of a Masculine Ministry. The title of the talk and many of the the quotations used throughout were taken from J. C. Ryle: That Man of Granite by Eric Russell, a volume in our History Maker series. In this video below, pastor John offers a brief overview of the talk.
