GRACE ABOUNDING TO THE CHIEF OF SINNERS
This Pure Gold Classic has been translated from the original seventeenth century text, and it was further edited and annotated by L. Edward Hazelbaker. This important work is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to learn about the author of The Pilgrim’s Progress.
First published in 1666, twelve years before the publication of The Pilgrim’s Progress, this autobiography shows what led to Bunyan’s conversion, his struggles to overcome his weaknesses and fears, his growth into spiritual leadership, and his perseverance through many trials and persecutions.
Like L. Edward Hazelbaker’s previous Pure Gold Classic, The Pilgrim’s Progress in Modern English, this newly updated edition of Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners extends the life of Bunyan’s writings and makes the author’s original work available to young and old alike in an understandable form.
Bunyan wrote this work while he was imprisoned for his non-conformist convictions and ministry. He rose from a low station in society to become one of England’s most heralded authors and spiritual leaders. This book gives fresh insights into Bunyan’s faith and the experiences that influenced his writings.
