Old Paths by J. C. Ryle (1816 - 1900).

This book is subtitled “Being Plain Statements on Some of the Weightier Matters of Christianity. The main title comes from the writings the old testament prophet Jeremiah, who refers to the old paths where the good way is, which if people walk in it they will find rest for their souls (Jer. 6 v6). Bishop Ryle wrote this book at a time when many in the church were forsaking the old paths of evangelical Christianity in favour of liberal ideas. In Ryle’s day the old doctrines held by the apostolic Christians and reformers had started to be sneered at in certain quarters as being old-fashioned and worn out, and that something more modern was needed.

Ryle held that the “old paths” were the best ones, and wrote “The longer I live the more I am convinced that the world needs no new Gospel, as some profess to think. I am thoroughly persuaded that the world needs nothing but bold, full, unflinching teaching of the “old paths””.

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Chris,
I see 19 chapters. How are you getting 55 sections?

Thanks, MaryAnn, for MCing this project. Yes, 55 sections does sound quite a lot for a book with 19 chapters! My aim was to have sections of easily manageable length, given that the chapters are quite long, and some have notes in small print. Chapter 1 (39 pages) and chapter 19 (45 pages) would each run to well over an hour at my reading pace. So what I tried to do was to have sections lasting around 20 minutes, give or take a little. Thus, for example, chapters 1 and 19 (39 and 45 pages respectively) would each have four sections, while chapters 12, 13 and 14 (each 18 pages) would comprise two sections each.

I would like to use the same kind of chapter division format that you used for Knots Untied (a great listen!), ie Ch 1 pt 1 etc.

But if you feel there are too many sections, I could make the sections a bit longer and fewer – it would be no problem for me to do that, as I haven’t yet organised the exact points of separation for the sections. Please let me know what you think.


And thanks again, Tiffany, for doing another DPL – I hope to get started early in the new year.

That sounds good Chris. It's easy to add (you can do that from the MW), but I have to delete each extra section individually, so wanted to make sure you had ballparked the number.

Enjoy!

Yes, Ryle is really good. I came across Watchman Nee when I was at college (a long time ago!). I remember reading his “The Normal Christian Life”, which was popular among students at the time. A lady in a church we were in many years ago met him when she was in China!

I’ve uploaded Sections 5, 6 and 7 ready for PL.
