John Bunyan is best known for his famous allegorical works, Pilgrim's Progress and The Holy War, his autobiographical Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners and his allegorical novel The Life and Death of Mr Badman. While justly famous for their literary merit, their real importance lies in Bunyan's portrayal of the sin of man, the grace of God and the nature of the Christian's life. These themes were Bunyan's great passion, and for them he was prepared to suffer the hardship of imprisonment. But his exposition of them was not confined to allegory, and in his many other works, like, Come and Welcome to Jesus Christ and An Exposition of the First Ten Chapters of Genesis, we find Bunyan writing as the outstanding pastor-evangelist he was.
