Expository Thoughts on Mark - CCS by J C Ryle and published by Classics.
First published in 1857, Mark was the second book to appear in J. C. Ryle’s series of Expository Thoughts on the Gospels. The earliest of the Gospel narratives to be written, Mark, says Ryle, ‘is singularly full of precious facts about the Lord Jesus, narrated in a simple, terse, pithy, and condensed style’. Those last four adjectives could well be used to describe Ryle’s own comments on the Gospel! These Expository Thoughts on Mark do full justice to such an inspired text, and are full of encouragement, wisdom and straightforward practical application.
