Overview

This tenth volume in a twelve-volume series offers reliable and modern scholarly texts for two treatises by Bunyan published when persecution of nonconformists was reaching a fierce climax. Seasonable Counsel presents Bunyan's reflections on how believers ought to understand and respond to that experience, while A Discourse upon the Pharisee and the Publicane discusses the parable in Luke xviii and provides Bunyan's ultimate thoughts on justification by faith. The introduction to the volume relates Bunyan's arguments to their historical and religious context.
