You’ve heard his name—now read his classic spiritual autobiography. Here is John Bunyan’s Grace Abounding, an important and powerful book abridged and updated for today’s reader. Written more than three centuries ago, this Christian classic still speaks to readers, addressing concerns that trouble the human heart today just as they did in the 1600s. Grace Abounding gives an account of God’s exceeding goodness in the life of “his poor servant John Bunyan”—as well as Bunyan’s call to the ministry and his imprisonment for that ministry. It’s a powerful introduction to a giant of the faith, and an encouraging story of God’s power to change people.

Maybe it is just the modern world in which I grew up, but Mr. Bunyan's journey to conversion in Christ was a lot of work. Much more work than most faithful people I know seem to think it takes to become converted to Christ. Mr. Bunyan relates a fearful back and forth mental journey from desiring to be wicked to rejoicing in the saving love of Christ. He genuinely struggles with his desire to be saved and his fear that he will be found wanting. It inspired me to put more effort into my relationship with Christ - to examine my life more closely and not take for granted the easiness of obtaining grace. I also found it interesting that Mr. Bunyan's conversion was a long process. There is the impression "out there" that one must "accept" Christ and then that's it. I think Mr. Bunyan had it right. Man is a variable creature, and must be engaged in the process of conversion probably his whole life. Great book.
