Book Description

Two works on prayer are here brought together. In Praying in the Spirit Bunyan defines what it means to pray with the spirit and with the understanding, and deals with difficulties in prayer. In The Throne of Grace, he explains how to approach God’s throne in prayer and opens up the blessings God’s people receive from the high priestly ministry of Jesus Christ.

  1. Robert Norman

    The treatise on prayer is excellent and worthy of five stars, however, this volume is dragged down by the included treatise on the throne of God in which Bunyan (unfortunately) makes many exegetical errors. His doctrine is still correct, despite this mishap, however I would only give the Throne of God two stars.
