Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners: In a Faithful Account of the Life and Death of John Bunyan
Cosimo, Inc., 1 maj 2007 - 244
"Grace Abounding continues the tradition of Christian testimonial classics tracing back to the Confessions of Saint Augustine. John Bunyan?'s autobiography, written while he was imprisoned for holding unsanctioned religious services and first published in 1666, is the unsparing account of one man?'s spiritual journey from atheism and blasphemy to devout Christianity. A reckless and profane youth leads Bunyan to despair in the belief that he has committed unforgivable sins. But two religious books belonging to his wife set Bunyan on the straight and narrow and a lifetime of pious devotion. Honest and unblinking in his self-assessment, Bunyan saw it as his duty to tell his story, warts and all, in order to comfort all those struggling with their faith. This classic of religious literature continues to be essential reading for the faithful and for students of great English literature.English preacher and writer JOHN BUNYAN (1628 1688) is the author of nearly sixty books, nine of which were written while he was in prison for unlicensed preaching. His works include The Pilgrim?'s Progress (1678 84), The Life and Death of Mr. Badman (1680), and The Holy War (1682)."

Strona 81 - Lord: looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God ; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.
Strona 159 - Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them : they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
Strona 208 - For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
Strona 206 - If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to Whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever.
Strona 173 - Such a nation might truly say to corruption, thou art my father, and to the worm, thou art my mother and my sister.
Strona 95 - I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.
Strona 84 - Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme : 29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost, hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation ; 30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
Strona 111 - If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance ; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Strona 111 - If we sin wilfully, after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sin ; but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
Strona 16 - ... I could also have stepped into a style much higher than this in which I have here discoursed, and could have adorned all things more than here I have seemed to do ; but I dare not. God did not play in tempting of me ; neither did I play, when I sunk as into a bottomless pit, when the pangs of hell caught hold upon me : wherefore I may not play in relating of them, but be plain and simple, and lay down the thing as it was.
