John Bunyan was born November 1628, in Elstow, England. A celebrated English minister and preacher, he wrote The Pilgrim's Progress (1678), the book that was the most characteristic expression of the Puritan religious outlook. His other works include doctrinal and controversial writings; a spiritual autobiography, Grace Abounding (1666); and the allegory The Holy War (1682).
John Bunyan’s personal and honest biography. He shares his immense struggles with sin, doubt, and of eventually overcoming. You’ll also get a glimpse behind the scenes of Bunyan’s very effective ministry.
Updated Edition: The best part of this book is the Bible verses added to the text. The original Pilgrim’s Progress listed the Bible verse references, but the verses themselves are so impactful when tied to the scenes in this allegory, that they are now included within the text of this book.
If you enjoyed Pilgrim's Progress, The Holy War, or any of his various evergreen writings, do also allow yourself the reward of soaking in John Bunyan's classic, Christian poetry. You will be delighted as a child, challenged if a sinner, and rewarded richly as a fellow believer.
Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you.
