It is to the great credit of the puritans that they felt such a passion for plumbing the depths of every word of scripture. Here Bunyan, whose own life saw periods of crushing doubt, spends 225 pages exploring the great comfort to be found in a single verse - John 6:37. I found this book a great encouragement, especially in its treatment of the phrase, "I will in no wise cast out." Here Bunyan counsels those of tender conscience who would come to Jesus but for their sense of unworthiness: "What ...more

Bunyan's book is a thorough exposition of one verse, John 6:37, that unveils the absolute promise of God to forever save all whom are His through the person and work of Jesus Christ. Bunyan is a gifted writer, and one imagines his ability to communicate this text via sermon would be equally passionate. Come and Welcome, while perhaps not the grandest of Puritan works, remains a decidedly helpful tool in understanding God's election, salvation, and assurance.
This book was written by John Bunyan, writer of "Pilgrim's Progress". Bunyan bases all of these wonderful sermons and lectures on John 3: 37 "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."

Have you sinned? Have you doubt? Have you been a backslider and continued in sin you despise? Bunyan addresses these and many more aspects of removing doubts that we have and approaches to difficulties of sinning and backsliding in the approach to Christ.

Excellent treatment of John 6:37.

Highly Recommend.

This book is an exposition of John 6:37. John Bunyan was a passionate writer, and in this book he pleads with sinners and backsliders (like me) to come to Christ, removing every obstacle in their way. For Bunyan there was no tension between Calvinism and the free offer of the gospel.
Justin Andrusk
Another classic Bunyan work; concise, clear, and pragmatic. I love how Bunyan takes such a simple question(Coming to Christ) and draws such rich applications and conclusions to the subject. Really enjoyed it.
Luke Evans
Good, not great, book. For its intent, an exposition of John 6:37, very helpful. Not a lot of gold nuggets like most Puritan works. But, you can't go wrong reading these guys.
