`I evidently saw that unless the great God of his infinite grace
and bounty, had voluntarily chosen me to be a vessel of mercy,
though I should desire, and long, and labour until my heart did
break, no good could come of it . . . How can you tell you are
Elected?' (GA, 47) In seventeenth-century England, the Calvinist
doctrine of predestination, with its belief in the predetermined
salvation of the few and damnation of the many, led many Christians
to an anguished search for evidence of God's favour. John Bunyan's
Grace Abounding records this spiritual crisis and its gruelling
fluctuations between hope and despair in all its psychological
intensity. It is a classic of spiritual autobiography - a genre
which flourished in seventeenth-century England, as anxiety over
one's spiritual state encouraged rigorous self-scrutiny and the
sharing of spiritual experiences. This edition sets Grace Abounding
alongside four of the most interesting and varied contemporary
spiritual autobiographies, making its cultural milieu more
meaningful to the modern reader.
