Description - The Miscellaneous Works of John Bunyan: Volume X: Seasonable Counsel and A Discourse upon the Pharisee and the Publicane by John Bunyan

The treatises in this volume were first published when the persecution of nonconformists was reaching a fierce climax. "Seasonable Counsel", subtitled "Advice to Sufferers", presents Bunyan's reflections on how believers were to understand and respond to this experience. His own sufferings are reflected in his essentially practical discussion of the many issues raised and in the vigorous speech-based language of the mature preacher and writer. "A Discourse upon the Pharisee and the Publicane" is an exposition of the parable in Luke XVIII. The work gives Bunyan's ultimate thoughts on justification by faith, which show a development from his earlier position. There is a shrewd analysis of the characters, with a lively and original discussion of body language. The introduction to this volume relates Bunyan's arguments and experience to their context, including contemporary ideas on persecution and toleration and on the connection between faith and justification. This and other volumes are intended for all interested in Bunyan, historians of the 17th century and church historians.
