My chief desire in this [commentary], and all my writings, is to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and make Him beautiful and glorious in the eyes of men, and to promote the increase of repentance, faith, and holiness upon earth. If this shall be the result of this volume, the labour that it has cost me will be more than repaid.

J.C. Ryle, Preface to Expository Thoughts on Luke (Vol. 1), 1858
