In Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, John Bunyan recounts his inner thoughts as he grappled with his faith. Bunyan takes us through the struggle of his own sin and how grace led him from a conflicted conscience to a powerful preacher of the gospel. Modern listeners will find encouragement in Bunyan’s remedies for his own troubled conscience, as well as hope that God has used so greatly a man who struggled so deeply.

This work is a balm to the terror stricken soul and bids every to soul to pray for mercy; "perhaps there is hope for me also."
If anyone agonizes over the assurance of their salvation, blasphemous thoughts, the unpardonable sin, temptation, sin, attacks of the evil one, or any other ill that attacks the soul of man in opposition to salvation and the glory of God through the person of Jesus Christ, then "Come ye who fear God and I will tell you what He has done for my soul!" Truly indeed, here in this book is "a wonderful system of education."
Simon Vance is John Bunyan. I have listened to this work a dozen times and plan to listen to it a dozen more. I can't listen to any of his other works because all I hear is "Come ye who fear God and I will tell you what He has done for my soul!"
"O Love that Will Not Let Me Go"
John Bunyan's open, honest and self reflective testimony is very compelling. His letting us into his personal thoughts, especially those which expressed doubt, were greatly appreciated as we all experience them. Greater is his commitment after the doubt, which provides encouragement to the reader.
Bunyan's reflections on his deepest and most innermost struggles in sin are so open and honest, and all the more helpful to us fellow pilgrims as a result!
