July 2016 Book of the Month

This month I would like to recommend one of John Bunyan’s less read books. This book Grace Abounding to the Chief of All Sinners is outstanding. It is a quick read, you can buy it from the Amazon machine here, <a  href=”https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1512399108/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1512399108&linkCode=as2&tag=catabaptchur-20&linkId=829a76fe1497d95262544271a1888cf9″>Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners</a><img src=”//ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=catabaptchur-20&l=am2&o=1&a=1512399108″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” />

Bunyan describes how he came to believe in Jesus as Lord. The story is painful as he recounts how far he was lost. You might say he considered himself chief of all sinners. Bunyan’s story is one I am particular sympathetic too as it was a long drawn out process. Bunyan was scared to death of hell and eternal damnation but discovered the more he sinned and the worse he was, the less he worried about going to hell. You might consider this a prescription to sin, written by the devil himself, and Bunyan never missed an opportunity to fill it.

This is a story many of us can relate to. Most of the time people think of Pilgrim’s Progress when they think of Bunyan. I would like to recommend this text as well worth your time, money, and attention. Every believer knows in their hearts just how much grace they needed. There is a time we all likely feel the effects of sin and feel like the chief of all sinners. Bunyan takes that sentiment, puts his own stamp on it, and has given us all a brighter look at ourselves because if he could come so far with the power of God, how far and what limits do we have? Enjoy the book, I am sure you will.
