It has been rightly said of John Bunyan that the reason his sermons were so popular in a period of great preachers, and his writings so excellent, is that very few have lived and breathed the Word of God in the Holy Bible as he did. His writings, full of grace, are always faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and it is for this reason that they ought to be read more than ever in these apostate times.

George Offor's 3 volume edition of “Bunyan's Works,” with Offer's marginal notes and footnotes, is probably the best of all the editions containing all of Bunyan's writings. It contains some fine engravings too. Along with writings from this edition, I shall be adding other articles that in any way edify us about this faithful servant of the Lord.
