Named one of the “20 Best Christian Books for Men” by TheBlazingCenter.com.
“J. C. Ryle [was] one of the most respected figures in the entire history of Evangelical Christianity” — R. Albert Mohler Jr., president, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Pastor and author J.C. Ryle (1816-1900) asked a similar question more than a century ago in Thoughts for Young Men as he observed the spiritual condition of young men in the culture. Young men, he noted, are the least likely to be involved in church but the most likely to cause their parents heartache. They’re also the most likely to being involved in drunkenness, crimes and gangs.
“How dreadful this is!” Ryle wrote.
But Ryle said there is hope. In his popular book Thoughts for Young Men, Ryle warns young men about the dangers of the world — pride, pleasure, contempt of true Christianity and the fear of man’s opinion, among them — while giving biblical, practical advice for living a godly life.
Among his words of wisdom:
— Go to Christ with your problems. “He knows by experience a young man’s mind.”
— Choose your friends carefully. “The devil has few better helps in ruining a man’s soul.”
— Take seriously the Bible’s warnings about sexual immorality. “It is a sin that slays its thousands in every age, and has overthrown more than a few of the saints of God in the past.”
— Don’t worry what the world thinks. “Can man save your soul? No. Will man be your judge in the great and dreadful day of judgment? No.”
Thoughts for Young Men is for young men who desire to live for God … but are tempted by the lusts of the world. It also is for young men who are caught up in the things of the world … but need to hear the voice of God. It is the perfect book for personal study … and for small groups too.
It is a must-read for this generation and for every generation.
