Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn about the life of one of the most important Christian authors of all times—John Bunyan. This work was first published in 1666, twelve years before his great work, The Pilgrim's Progress was published.

Bunyan wrote Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners while he was in prison (in the Bedford County Jail in England) for his non-conformist convictions and ministry. He remained in prison for twelve years, refusing to surrender his convictions and his non-conformist stance.

More than just an autobiography, this work gives revealing insights into what led to the author's spiritual conversion, his struggles to overcome inward weaknesses and fears, his growth into spiritual leadership, and his perseverance through trials and persecutions.

Like L. Edward Hazelbaker's previous Pure Gold Classic™, The Pilgrim's Progress in Modern English, this edition of Grace Abounding extends the life of Bunyan's writings and makes them available to young and old alike in a more understandable form.

Bunyan rose form a low station in society (the son of a tinker) to become one of England's most heralded authors and spiritual leaders. Read this book to gain insight into Bunyan's faith and the experiences that influenced his writings.
