Book Description

8 Dec 2010
Readers who have been inspired in their Christian walk by John Bunyan’s “Pilgrim’s Progress” will also enjoy following another human, appropriately named “Mr. Badman,” on his life journey. Sadly, the life choices Mr. Badman makes in this allegory lead him ultimately to hell. In this allegorical tale, the wickedness, depravity, and carnality in the life and death of Mr. Badman are contrasted with biblical standards of living and the path that leads to heaven. The wisdom of Mr. Wiseman will strike you as he explains a godly life in all situations including home, business, and relationships. In “Journey to Hell,” John Bunyan provides instructions for the Christian life, showing readers how to experience joy in difficult circumstances, avoid the dire consequences of living a sinful life, and teach Christian values to children. Wisdom is also included which will help readers to succeed in business, avoid bad marriages and God’s judgment, and ultimately, how to please God.

Product Description

About the Author

John Bunyan (1628–1688) was an English Christian writer and preacher, famous for writing Pilgrim's Progress. Though he was a Reformed Baptist, in the Church of England he is remembered with a Lesser Festival on 30 August, and on the liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church (USA) on August 29. Bunyan wrote The Pilgrim's Progress in two parts, the first of which was published in London in 1678 and the second in 1684. He began the work in his first period of imprisonment, and probably finished it during the second. The earliest edition in which the two parts combined in one volume came in 1728. A third part falsely attributed to Bunyan appeared in 1693, and was reprinted as late as 1852. Its full title is The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Journey To Hell 18 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is actually a retitled and edited version of John Bunyan's, "The Life and Death of Mr. Badman," which is otherwise rather hard to locate these days. Its lesser popularity is most likely due to the subject matter, which focuses upon sin, and the fact that it doesn't have the "happy ending" most people seem to require. However, it is a terrific work, definitely the equal of Pilgrim's Progress or Grace Abounding. Bunyan, as usual, finds new meaning in many verses of scripture that one might otherwise overlook. If you like John Bunyan's work and don't have this, get it. It's a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Reverse Pilgrim's Progress - Burning Issues 17 Aug 2004
By Clare Chu - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Mr. Badman is just plain BAD. Little sins in little children get magnified into bigger and worse sins. Mr. Badman truly has every bad trait anyone could ever have. He started with lying and stealing, graduated into drinking, cheating and adultery, and then becomes a first-class hypocrite to snag himself a wealthy Christian woman for marriage. While he was sick, he cried out in false repentance only to regress as soon as he was getting well. The saddest and most touching part of the book is the death of his Christian wife and her exhortations to him and their unsaved children. From then on, it's all downhill, as Mr. Badman's seared conscience admits no light, and God gives him up to his destruction. This book has everything NOT to do if you don't want to end up like Mr. Badman. It is also very relevant with the issues of today, drunk "driving", planned "parenthood", and bankruptcy and fraud. Hot summertime reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am undone! 26 Jan 2001
By Steven Draa - Published on
While this book tends to deal with the individual that is completely sold out for sin, there are things that every Christian will be able to identify with. John Bunyan deals with the fact that sin is sin, no matter what lable any given society has given it.
While I thank the Almighty Sovereign God for showing me my need for a savior, and for granting me the priviledge of repenting when I did, I must admit that my heart was very sorrowful and heavy as I read this book. By reading of Badman's extreme antics and his propensity for developing new methods of sin, I must admit that I saw things in my regenerated being that relate to Mr. Badman in one way or another. This is NOT a good thing to identify with, however, I feel that it is a tool that God is using in order to show me my continued need for help from above.
While this book is ficticious in it's characters, the truths that come blazing forth from the scenarios are deep and penetrating. This is a book that should be read often. This is a book that forces the reader to bare his soul before the Creator. Thank God for men like Bunyan.
Do yourself a favor, O comfortable Christian......Read this book and pray that God will allow you to be honest with your assessment of your current condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Avoiding the bad mistakes of going to Hell 21 Sep 2003
By - Published on
Even though this book was written in 1600's, it remained very pratical, even up to today. It talked about how a young boy rejecting the calling of God and became a chief in evil workings. And see how God gave him up to vile illusion. Truly a God inspired book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Avoid the Road to Hell and Find Joy 12 May 2010
By Mike Robinson - Published on
If you loved Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" and you yearn for more, then "Journey to Hell" is the volume for you. John Bunyan (1628 1688) was born England, preached in Lower Samsell and spent time in prison for his faith. His marvelous pen produced:
- The Holy City
- Pilgrims' Progress
- Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners
- The Holy War
- Visions of Heaven and Hell
- And this outstanding volume.

Herein Bunyan presents a fascinating allegory as the main character, Mr. Badman, is a wicked miscreant hell-bent of living for sin. He's depraved and immersed in the lusts of the flesh, wickedness, depravity, and carnality. His profligacy is compared with the moral law and the fruit of the Spirit as the right way to live is made clear while trusting in Christ alone for eternal salvation. It's uplifting and edifying to ponder the life of Mr. Wiseman who lives for God and strives to please the Lord.

Chapters in this stirring volume include:

- A bad boy
- Tricks of the wicked businessman
- The sin of pride
- A Christian's death
- A quiet, hardened death
- The Final judgment
- And Excellent Extras: The sayings of John Bunyan and the Life of John Bunyan.

Bunyan says: "If you have sinned, do not lie down without repentance; for the want of repentance after one has sinned makes the heart yet harder and harder."

This powerful work will help you discover How to:

- find true joy in difficult conditions
- avoid the dire results of sin and profligacy
- instruct your children in the ways of God and how they can avoid evil
- be secure in Christ and find pardon from God s judgment
- And more
This was originally published as "The Life and Death of Mr. Badman" (271 pages).
