Thursday Book Review – Grace Abounding

Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners by John Bunyan was published in 1666. Bunyan wrote this book while he was serving a twelve-year sentence in jail for preaching without permission. This book is such a vivid account of the struggle Bunyan went through coming to faith it will make your heart ache. The only other faithful brother I’ve heard likewise is Martin Luther, who seemed to suffer from a similar burden of sin.

This book, like many other’s I’ve recommended to you, is in the public domain. This means you can download a free pdf or Kindle version, listen to an audible book, or purchase your own copy. I would strongly recommend this book to go along with the reading of The Pilgrims Progress.

  1. Thanks, sister! I’m putting this on my “must read” list. 17th-century English is a bit daunting, but usually by the 2nd or 3rd page my brain is picking it up pretty well. Twelve years in jail for preaching? We take our Bibles and religious freedom for granted but they were bought with a great price.

    1. Very true, brother, especially those who gave their lives to get the Bible translated into the language of regular folks. I think, if suddenly preaching was illegal in America, it would be good for this one thing…to separate the sheep from the goats from the wolves.

      1. Thank you for this post and the Youtube audio link. I don’t always have time to read because of the sad dynamics of my present life but as I catch up on tasks in my ‘part’ of the house I use my FM transmitter to listen to quality audio or video on the computer. I consider this aspect of technology a great blessing from the Lord. 🙂
