Behind Mr. Bunyan
The story is told by Agnes herself, drawn from original sources, of her life as a twenty-year-old young woman who belonged to John Bunyan’s church. The rich spiritual value of Agnes’ story was recognized long ago and was often reprinted, and she tells her story humbly and winsomely. Behind Mr. Bunyan is a remarkable testimony of faith in Christ even when under fire from one’s own family members, and how Agnes overcomes suspicion and animosity with devoted love.

“THOU shalt never listen to the rogue again!”
“Silence, girl! Have I not said it? Thou shalt never go to hear him preach again! He is a pestilent knave. He will bring all who hear him to trouble. Dost hear me, girl? Thou shalt not go!”
“Nay, but, sweet father!”
“Silence!” thundered the angry man. “I have spoken; let that be enough. Thou shalt have no more of this preaching dinned into thine ears, and neither will I. Thou shalt never hear Mr. Bunyan again. He has done harm enough already.”
Agnes was absolutely aghast at this sudden outbreak, for which she was totally unprepared. She and her father had for some while been attending with great interest and profit the teachings and preachings of the notable Puritan, John Bunyan, whose wonderful personal experiences brought home to his hearers a sense of reality which was often lacking in other teachers.
