About Charles C. Ryrie (1925 – 2016)

Charles C. Ryrie was one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century. He made a
profound impact on evangelicalism as a tenured professor (Dallas Theological Seminary), as a college president (Philadelphia College of Bible), as a bold pioneer, as an ardent apologist, and as an ordained minister. However, his greatest impact was with a pen, as a prolific writer.

Dr. Ryrie wrote 49 different books, which have been translated into 26 different languages. More than
1.5 million copies of his publications have been sold, not including the Ryrie Study Bible, which has sold over 2.6 million copies alone.
