Overview

Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners (Authentic Original Classic) by John Bunyan

"My grace is sufficient for thee" (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Before Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan wrote Grace Abounding-from his jail cell. John was not imprisoned for his youthful rebellion, but for preaching the gospel after he heard a word from God.

"For though, as yet, I was nothing but a poor painted hypocrite, yet I loved to be talked of as one that was truly godly."

For many years, John-like all Christians-struggled with his sinful nature. In Grace Abounding, he honestly declares his shortcomings, and knows that he must overcome them to fulfill his destiny.

"But one morning, when I was again at prayer,
and trembling under the fear of this,
that no word of God could help me,
that piece of a sentence darted in upon me,
'My grace is sufficient.'"

Throughout John's life he realized how vulnerable he was, and how great God's grace is.

First, I confessed I was fallen, but not fallen away….
Secondly, I confessed that I had put Jesus Christ to shame by my sin,
but not to open shame….

Discover God's abounding grace for you through this classic work that has guided countless many over the past 300 years.

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.
