Need A Little Help?

J. C. Ryle was an Anglican Bishop of Liverpool, England, during the late 1800’s.   He loved the Puritans and felt they had been slandered and maligned.  But most of all, he loved God’s word.  His notes on the gospels are alive with practical applications and clear explanations of the basic doctrines of Christianity.

One word of advice from an older woman:  Establish a library of quality helps for biblical interpretation and application.  Books go out of print and become unavailable.  They also become more expensive because of inflation.  I stress buying books in print, since the internet might one day be censured by those who hate the gospel.  Collect the best for your grandchildren and great grandchildren.

About Carol Brandt

I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.

My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.

Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
