    COURTEOUS READER, I have made bold once again to present thee with some of my meditations; and they are now about thePHARISEE and thePUBLICAN: Two men in whose condition the whole world is comprehended, both as to their state now, and condition at the judgment.

    Wherefore in reading this little book thou must needs read thyself. I do not say thou must understand thy condition; for it is the gift of God must make thee do that. Howbeit, if God will bless it to thee, it may be a means to bring thee to see whose steps thou art treading, and so at whose end thou art like to arrive.

    And let me beg this at thy hand, now thou art about to read; reserve thy judgment or sentence as to me, until thou hast passed through the discourse.

    Justification is treated of here, and the way for men to be saved.

    I have also OPUBLICAN here, as my skill hath served me, for thy encouragement, set before thee the Pharisee and the Publican in their colors, and shewed thee, that though the Publican seemed to be far behind, yet in running he got the prize from the lofty Pharisee. I say, Art thou a Pharisee? Here is a Pharisee for thee! Art thou a Publican? Here is a Publican for thee!

    God give thee the Publicanís heart, if thou art in the Publicanís sins, that thou mayest partake with the Publican, of mercy.óSo wisheth thy friend. JOHN BUNYAN.
