A scholarly edition of The Miscellaneous Works of John Bunyan: Good News for the Vilest of Men; The Advocateship of Jesus Christ by Richard L. Greaves. The edition presents an authoritative text, together with an introduction, commentary notes, and scholarly apparatus.
'This latest addition to the generally admirable Clarendon edition of Bunyan's less-familiar texts makes two interesting items once more easily available to scholars of seventeenth-century Puritanism and the literature which it formed.' The Modern Language Review
'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.'
