This volume contains the last six texts from John Doe's folio of 1692. Although none can be dated with certainty, internal evidence points to all six having been written during the last ten years of Bunyan's life. Given his increasing fame as a preacher and writer during this period, the fact that so many works remained unpublished suggests that outside circumstances must have made publication seem unwise - presumably, the very dangerous position he was in, as nonconformist in a time of ruthless persecution of religious and political dissent. There are passages in some of the works here that might have excited suspicion - while the most important work in the volume, "Of Antichrist, and His Ruine", would readily have fallen foul of the Restoration authorities. The introduction considers the style as well as the theology of the works, and in particular the millenarianism of the treatise "Of Antichrist", comparing it with Bunyan's earlier millenarian work, "The Holy City". It also discusses the political context in which it was probably written. The volume provide textual annotation and commentary.

'Many of the introductions to the volumes of The Miscellaneous Works draw out the parallels between the major writings and the various religious tracts. The Bunyan of The Miscellaneous Works is very much a preacher and theologian. As a result of such work on Bunyan's sectarian milieu, Bunyan's relation to his context is coming into ever sharper focus. These beautifully bound and meticulously edited volumes are positive encouragements to the reader. It would be difficult to overpraise them.' Religious Studies Review, Volume 19, Number 1/January 1993
