THERE ARE MANY parts of the world where English is spoken, yet 17th century Puritan English is not as easily understood by those who might benefit tremendously from many of the anointed works of the Puritan ministers; men such as John Bunyan. Many know, or are at least aware of THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS, written by Mr. Bunyan, yet are not familiar with his other marvelous writings. CHRISTIAN BEHAVIOR is a wonderful treatise of practical divinity that will provoke us to meditate more upon God’s Word, encourage us in justification by grace through faith, and keep us firmly planted at the foot of the Cross of Jesus Christ.

This treatise was written in 1663 during John Bunyan’s incarceration in the Bedford prison and it was first published as a pocket edition in 1674 after his release from prison. Noted in his own “Epistle to the Reader,” Mr. Bunyan’s desire for Christians to have a pocket reader of very practical Christianity is, perhaps, something quite needed for Christians today. Among his contemporaries, and even among those following him, were very devout and pious men of God, who had written “Bodies” of practical divinity or practical Christianity that were hundreds, even thousands, of pages long. This splendid work is concise, yet full of practical, Biblical wisdom. Our edition of this work, as well as the editor’s advertisement, come from a three volume collection edited by George Offor, Esq., and entitled, The Whole Works of John Bunyan. George Offor’s edition of Bunyan’s works was published in Glasgow in 1862.

Edited by Jon Cardwell in modern English, this treatise is published in easy-to-read 11 pt. font.

The Work of Jesus Christ as an Advocate Clearly Explained and Largely Improved for the Benefit of All Believers. In his letter to the readers of this treatise Mr. Bunyan wrote, “Of the many and singular advantages, therefore, that such have by this their Advocate in his advocating for them, this book gives some account; as, where he pleads, how he pleads, what he pleads, when he pleads, with whom he pleads, for whom he pleads, and how the enemy is put to shame and silence before their God and all the holy angels.” This treatise was published in London in 1689, one year after John Bunyan’s death. Our edition of this work comes from George Offor’s three-volume collection, The Whole Works of John Bunyan, published in Glasgow in 1862. Today, this excellent treatise, written by the author of The Pilgrim’s Progress, is made conveniently available in paperback for Bible study and personal devotion. This paperback was edited by Jon J. Cardwell, pastor of Sovereign Grace Baptist Church in Anniston, Alabama.
