Bunyan’s insanity was such that he devoured Scripture and not only would verses pop into his head saying “take me, take me!
Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners by John Bunyan
Sorry ’bout that, friends! His own thoughts, he then admits, condemn him for that motive and way him down with the oppression that he can never get beyond his guilt for trying to manipulate God. The moment he interrupts a bunch of women and gets convicted is an amazing moment of self-discovery that captures so much of life.

It’s interesting that I was reading this and Blue Like Jazz which is, surprisingly, not nearly as emo as Grace Abounding at the same time, which, while separated by hundreds of years, talks about many of the same doubts and both authors end up at the conclusion that even if they can’t have certainty, Jesus is so fair, so lovely, so compelling that it would be worth it to risk everything for and on him, and to say with Job, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him.

Whenever some Chjef are just living life or discussing some theological matter, no surer way to end a decent conversation or make people, especially chirf Christians, feel bad is to turn the topic to “spiritual matters,” especially discussions of one’s sins. It was like a spiritual rollercoaster.
One of the best books I’ve ever read. I loved it at first, Abouning almost quit in the middle, and I loved the end. May 14, Douglas Wilson rated it really liked it Shelves: Thank you Jesus, for working your grace through the man John Bunyan.
Very relieving and comforting to know that there are people in time past that have gone through similar, if not, the same conflict of the soul as I have encounter in my spiritual life.
If you pick up and read this book, one of two things will happen.
The book of man bubyan was vexed by his sin to the degree that he found great hope in the gospel. I found myself at first thinking something was clinically wrong with Bunyan and maybe there wasbut the more I read I wondered if there wasn’t something wrong with me.
Aboundinf 01, Jonathan McCarthy rated it it was amazing. No trivia or quizzes yet. It is when two such persons discover one another, when, whether with immens I can put it no better than Lewis: The conclusion alone is worth the read for any believer. Are you discouraged in your walk with the Lord Just to hear how firm he was in the face of irrational religious persecution.
Anyway, although I sympathized with the author’s wrestling to understand the nature of salvation, it was pretty tedious at times to sinnwrs to his prolonged agonies of doubt, as I am sure it’s been tedious for others to listen to mine. Jon think that because we really meant our prayers, because we really xbounding our sins, and because we really trusted in Jesus, we are saved and God is on our side.
He wrote The Pilgrim’s Progress, arguably the most famous published Christian allegory. I think it will help people with OCD see that they are not alone in their thoughts and fears.
Read it in Czech. Thanks for telling us about the problem.
All glory be to Christ! His Biblical allusions and metaphors are almost as powerful here as in the Pilgrim’s Progress. For that he found himself in prison for many years.
Always a bonus to have one reader throughout a whole book. What self-tortures he put himself through rather than simply believing.
Perhaps we should pray that they did. It’s probably not for everyone but I think it is certainly for those that have an understanding of the ever present battle in a Christian’s life in wrestling with angst and fears.

Amazing book and highly recommended. His descriptions of being glibly theological are actually really good and really vivid. Today his Pilgrim’s Progress is one of the most popular Christ John Bunyan was a man like buynan people who struggled in serving the Lord but led a triumph life because he was committed to following Christ.
