Product Information

''The pictorial power he possessed in a rare degree. His mental eye perceived the truth most vividly/ Some minds are moving in a constant mystery. They see men like trees walking. . . To Bunyan’s bright and broad-waking eye all things were clear. The men walked, and the trees stood sill. Everything was seen in sharp relief and definite outline – a reality. And besides the pictorial, he possessed in the highest degree the illustrative faculty. Not only did his own mind perceive the truth most vividly, but he saw the very way to give others a clear perception of it also. This is the great secret of successful teaching''.
''But Bunyan appeals not only to the intellect and imagination, but to the hearts of men . . . he speaks home to the whole of man, and has made his works a lesson-book for all mankind'' (James Hamilton).
''The style of Bunyan is delightful to every reader, and invaluable as a study to every person who wishes to obtain a wide command over the English language. The vocabulary is the vocabulary of the common people. There is not an expression, . . . which would puzzle the rudest peasant. We have observed several pages which do not contain a single word of more than two syllables. Yet no writer has said more exactly what he meant to say. (Lord Maccaulay)
Bunyan’s expressive titles are a preview of what the reader will meet with in these volumes of spiritual diversity. From The Desire of the Righteous Granted, to, The Death of Mr. Badman; from One Thing is Needful, to, Heart’s Ease in Heart Trouble; from The Jerusalem Sinner Saved, to, The Groans from Hell; from Advice to Sufferers, to, The Water of Life; from Solomon’s Temple Spiritualized, to, The Doctrine of Law and Grace Unfolded the height and depth, the breadth and diversity of this remarkable man and his mind is evident to everyone who reads Bunyan.
In his autobiography, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, there is an honest portrayal of the man first and last. He does not hesitate to tell the truth as it happened to him, how he failed, how he prayed, how he conquered. But he was too humble to tell what a great man he was.

Bunyan  (1628-1688) rose from an humble beginning to being a preacher to a little house church, to 12 years in jail because he would not agree to quit preaching, to a huge church in London. He wrote 66 books, nearly all while in jail.  704 pages, blue hard cover
