SUGGESTIVE QUESTIONS FOR THE STUDY OF "GRACE ABOUNDING"

1. Bunyan, like his father, was by trade a " tinker." What impressions of the social rank of the "tinker" in the seventeenth century do you get from the following references to the plays of Shakespeare? Winter'1 s Tale, IV, iii, 19 and 103; / Henry IV, II, iv, 20; 2 Henry VI, III, ii, 277.

2. Discuss the statement, " No man ever owed more to his limitations than Bunyan."

3. Does he seem to have been chiefly a man of action or a man of thought?

4. In his mental life does he seem to have been under the control of his feelings or of his will? Give reasons for your answer.

5. What proof of Bunyan's tolerance and dislike of controversy do you find in this book?
