John Bunyan - The Pilgrim's Progress
The classic allegory of the Christian life - both parts of the great adventure
The true nature of the Christian life—one of exciting adventure beset with dangers and difficulties—is brilliantly portrayed in Bunyan’s classic allegory. The author vividly portrays key features of Christian experience, such as the Slough of Despond, and familiar characters, such as Mr. Worldly Wiseman, in a way that brings encouragement, warning and correction to every believer.
In this edition, an attempt has been made to make the text as clear and readable as possible whilst retaining the original language of Bunyan’s day. Explanatory notes and a short biography are also included.
“Next to the Bible, the book I value most is Pilgrim’s Progress. I believe I have read it through at least a hundred times. It is a volume of which I never seem to tire; and the secret of its freshness is that it is so largely compiled from the Scriptures. It is really Biblical teaching put into the form of a simple yet very striking allegory.”
