Come and hear all ye that fear

God, and I will declare what He hath

Done for my soul.

Psalm lxvi. 16.

The text in this edition is as nearly as possible that of the eighth, which was corrected by Bunyan himself a few weeks before his death. The text of ‘A Relation’ is that of the first edition of 1765. A few minor changes have been introduced for the convenience of the reader. The use of capital letters has been considerably modified, and the orthography has been in places modernized. In some few instances the Scripture references have been added to quotations where they did not appear in the original. It must be remembered that Bunyan often quoted Scripture inexactly, and it has not been deemed necessary to make all his quotations follow the text of the Authorized Version.

The marginal summary is not part of the original, but has been prepared for this edition in order that it may correspond with the Society’s editions of the ‘Pilgrim’s Progress.’

The illustrations have been prepared for this work by Mr. Harold Copping, whose illustrations to the ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’ have justly attracted much attention.

About the Author

Bunyan was born in 1628 in the heart of England, a mile south of Bedford a few years before the English Civil War. His family was so poor that when his father died, John was left only one shilling and his tinker's anvil. The boy had little formal education. However, he learned to read and feasted on medieval romances in which valiant knights underwent great trials and conquered villains and monsters. In youth he boasted a mouth so profane it shocked even wicked men. Additionally, he loved to dance, bell-ring and lead Sunday sports, all considered improper by Puritans. Although he attended church, he had little religious feeling.

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.
