Introduction by William Barker. Bunyan wrote extensively on topical theological and practical matters, issues that faced the church in his time and which face us still. The Intercession of Christ is one of these works. In it Bunyan traces the nature of Jesus intercession, who it should affect, the benefits it gives us and how effective that intercession is. Bunyan is also keen to show the inferences of the doctrine on such subjects as backsliding for example, how Christs intervention is affected when we continue to sin and are the sins of Gods people worse than the sins of others? As relevant today as when first penned and will be of great pastoral assistance to the believer.
John Bunyan (1628-1688) was born in Elstow, England, and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he believed God had done for a special purpose. In November 1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve years.
Among the many writings he published during his imprisonment are The Holy City; Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners; and the most famous, The Pilgrims Progress.
After his release, he became the pastor of a church in Bedord, England and continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War; Bunyan's Visions of Heaven and Hell and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.
