Overview

Though he is perhaps best known for his work Pilgrim's Progress, one of the essential pieces of Christian allegory, John Bunyan's Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners is equally stirring, particularly when the author's backstory is made clear. Composed while he was serving a decade-long sentence in prison, Grace Abounding has inspired readers to turn over their problems to Christ as a way of letting go of their greatest doubts, much in the same way that John Bunyan did as he faced 12 years behind bars - for preaching without a license, of all offenses.

John Bunyan is best known for The Pilgrim's Progress, the great allegorical tale we all remember from English class. This book is the reality behind the fantasy, or the author's personal autobiography that inspired the fictional narrative of Christian. I call it an autobiography only to the extent that St. Augustine's Confessions might be called that, for it is a spiritual autobiography after the manner of Confessions, but very different as well. John Bunyan, perhaps more so than any other literary figure in history, has captured in writing the struggles every Christian goes through at some point or other in his or her lifetime. Echoing Martin Luther and foreshadowing John Wesley, Bunyan exhaustively apprehends and skillfully sets down in writing the elusive and often perplexing wrestling of conscience that results when a sinner begins to reckon with a holy God. He boldly tackles the difficult passages of the Bible, which he believed to be the very Word of God, and painstakingly works to overcome the 'Giant Despair' which assaults him and seeks to use the very words of the Bible against him to discourage his pursuit of God by smothering his assurance of salvation in Christ. For those who have read Pilgrim's Progress, this work is less entertaining and requires more diligence to read through. For the believing Christian who has ever felt hopeless or an unhealthy fear of condemnation, this book will assure you that you are not alone.
