Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners
By John Bunyan
Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he has done unto my soul. (Psalm 66:16)
This is a short and honest account of how God demonstrated His exceeding great mercy to His unworthy servant, John Bunyan.
This story specifically tells how Bunyan was converted. John Bunyan was a companion of sin and was troubled by sin. He fought temptation and sin in his own strength and lost, and in despair he gave up hope of ever finding God’s mercy; but the Lord Jesus Christ at last delivered him from the guilt and terror that so often and so viciously troubled him.
In addition to this, a short account of Bunyan’s call to the work of the ministry is told, along with the trials and trouble he encountered – including some of the difficulties he faced while in prison.
This is all taken from his writings and is now published for the encouragement and support of others who are weak and tempted and need strength and hope and victory in Jesus.
