It would be accurate to say that his books are a distillation of true Puritan theology presented in a highly readable and modern form.  Ryle, like his great masters, has no easy way to holiness to offer us and no "patent' method by which it can be attained; but he invariably produces that "hunger and thirst after righteousness" which is the only indispensable condition to being "fillied." -- D. M. Lloyd-Jones in Forward

The older I grow, the more I am convinced that real practical holiness does not receive the attention it deserves . . . But, at the same time, I am increasingly convinced that the zealous efforts of some well-meaning persons to promote a higher standard of spiritual life are often not "according to knowledge," and are really calculated to do more harm than good . . . It is of great importance that the whole subject should be placed on right foundatons . . . -- author in Preface and Introduction
