’’What care I,’’ says Satan to Bunyan, ’’though I be seven years in chilling your heart, if I can do it at last?’’ Sobering words written by a man who experienced firsthand the high cost of belief. Best known for his allegory ’’Pilgrim’s Progress,’’ John Bunyan (1628-1688) spent many years imprisoned for preaching God’s Word. Out of his first imprisonment, which lasted 20 years, came ’’Grace Abounding,’’ an intimate account of his own spiritual regeneration, from his earliest convictions of sin and his struggles against unbelief, to his entrance into the meaning and comfort of the Holy Scriptures. This edition also features material included by Bunyan himself at the end of his life, including his account of his arrest and imprisonment, and the testimony of his wife before the judges on his behalf.
