‘Why then do not Christians devote themselves to this so heavenly, so goodly, so sweet, and so comfortable a thing, that yieldeth such advantage to the soul?’

Book Description

‘Nu hony in a B’ is the way in which John Bunyan rearranged the letters of his name in order to describe the effect of God’s grace in his life. This treatise on Ephesians 3:18-19 was originally entitled The Saint’s Knowledge of Christ’s Love and from some 440 Bible references Bunyan shows how knowing Christ’s love is the message of Scripture and also the essence of heaven, partly possessed and expressed on earth. Those who know it are rich beyond measure and they are the people who ‘sweeten the churches and bring glory to God and to religion.’

    This is a masterpiece. Knowing of Bunyan more for his spiritual allegories I was delightfully surprised to see how well his pen writes on theological matters. This book is a must read and finds itself somewhere on my favorites.
    This and Glory of Christ by John Owen are by far the most Christ-exalting works aside from Scripture. If you want a technical book, go for Owen, if you want a more practical Puritan work, then this is the one you need.
