Description of this Book

This classic of Christian autobiography John Bunyan is timeless in its wisdom, wherein the author wrestles with his convictions of belief in the divine. For centuries a leading source on the Puritanical movement and its adherents, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners remains a regularly consulted text by theologians, religious historians and the general reader. The title itself is a composite reference to two famous Biblical passages: Romans 5:20 and Timothy 1:15. As well as discussing the process through which he found his Christian faith, Bunyan is forthright about the personal struggles he had with belief. Hardship was a reality for Bunyan, who drafted this book while incarcerated for preaching without a proper license. For Bunyan the possibility of salvation by the Lord was a constant preoccupation, and a motivation for authoring multiple works on faith and leading the life he led. The text is also valuable for its historical context in 17th century. This was a time when Protestantism in all forms was in its youth across Europe and the fledgling North America. The concerns with doubt expressed by Bunyan are without doubt eternal: anxiety over the existence of God in the face of what appears to be unceasing adversity remains a popular topic for believers in Christianity.
