Product description

About the Author

John Bunyan was born in Elstow, Bedfordshire, England, in 1628. He learned to read and write at the village school and was prepared to follow his father's trade as a brazier when the English Civil War broke out in 1644 and he was drafted into the Parliamentary army. His military service brought him into contact with Oliver Cromwell's Puritan troops. Beginning in 1648, Bunyan suffered a crisis in religious faith that lasted for several years. He turned to the Nonconformist church in Bedford to sustain him during this period. His first writings were attacks against the Quakers. Then Charles II was restored to the throne and Bunyan was arrested for conducting services not in accordance with the Church of England. He spent 12 years in jail. During this time, he wrote his autobiography, Grace Abounding, in which he described his spiritual struggle and growth. During his last years in prison, Bunyan began his most famous work, The Pilgrim's Progress, a two-part allegorical tale of the character Christian and his journey to salvation. Part I was published in 1678 and Part II in 1684. The second part deals with the spiritual journey of Christian's wife and sons, as they follow in his footsteps. With its elements of the folktale tradition, The Pilgrim's Progress became popular immediately. Well into the nineteenth century it was a book known to almost every reader in England and New England, second in importance only to the Bible. So great was the book's influence that it even plays a major role in Little Woman by Louisa May Alcott. Such expressions as "the slough of despond" and "vanity fair" have become part of the English language. Bunyan's other works include The Life and Death of Mr. Badman and The Holy War. He also wrote A Book for Boys and Girls, verses on religious faith for children. Bunyan died in London on August 31, 1688.

5.0 out of 5 stars Apart From Christ There Will Be Eternal Sighing 25 Aug. 2014
By Joseph J.Adrian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In his powerful and moving exposition of the rich man and Lazarus, John Bunyan states at the outset that the purpose of this parable is-"to show you the state of the godly and the ungodly to the world's end."

The rich man in this parable represents the ungodly and is contrasted with the beggar who represents the godly.That is not to say that all rich men are ungodly(or that all poor men are godly)or that to be wealthy is sinful in itself but the wealthy are subject to temptations-such as pride,inordinately caring for their possessions(they often place to high a value on them and to low a value on the things of the world to come).There is also the judgement(which is a judgement of outward appearance)that surely God is pleased with them and their outward prosperity is proof of that.This type of thinking ignores the numerous warnings,in the Word of God,not to set one's heart upon riches,and how exceedingly rare and difficult it is for a rich man to enter heaven.This is clearly by God's design-ICorinthians 1:26,29 'For ye see your calling,brethren,how that not many wise men after the flesh,not many mighty,not many noble are called... that no flesh should glory in his presence.' The wealthy and the mighty one's of this world often fall to the temptation to glory in themselves,or what they have accomplished,or in the power they have attained,or the wealth they have accumulated, but they do not glory in the Lord,who is the one who has caused them to differ from their fellow man in these things.

As soon as the rich man departed from this world-'in hell he lift up his eyes being in torments!' Obviously, the author did not believe in soul sleep for he writes-"as soon as ever they die,they go into hell." Often I hear unbelievers speak of loved ones who have recently died and were in great pain and suffering,and they'll say I'm thankful that their suffering has ended.However,if they're unbelievers not only has their suffering not ended but it has become far worse,for they too will lift up their eyes and be in torment.

The godly Bunyan is asking the reader to consider what kind of thoughts they will have on their death bed-the godly-A life well spent serving the Lord Jesus,which will bring great comfort even as death approaches or the ungodly as Bunyan so poignantly illustrates here-"the sight of an ill spent life,thy sins flying in thy face,thy conscience uttering itself with thunder claps against thee,the thoughts of God terrifying thee,death,with his merciless paw,the devils standing ready to scramble for thy soul,and hell enlarging herself,and ready to swallow thee up...".

Mr.Bunyan speaks of some in his day, that in speaking to them about the state of their souls,they are so ignorant of these things,it is like they had no souls to be concerned about.Man is made in the image of God,yet many in our day live as Psalm 14 verse 1 states-'the fool has said in his heart there is no God'.I think these type of people are much more characteristic of this generation.Just like the fool who says in his heart,there is no God,it is great folly to be ignorant of the true state of your soul(and to live as if you do not have a soul that upon death will reside in hell,if you remain impenitent and unbelieving).

The most horrific aspect of hell's torments must be its eternality-Bunyan writes "when you have been in hell so many thousand years,as there are stars in the sky,or drops in the sea,or sands on the sea shore-yet you have to lie there forever,how it will torment your soul." In this life,if you live a full one,on average it will be seventy to eighty years,this life seems long and endless at times but the whole of it compared to eternity will be far less than one drop of water from all the oceans of the world or one grain of sand from all the beaches and deserts in the world.The suffering and torments of hell will be endless.

John Bunyan's 'A Few Sighs From Hell'(there is the kindle version on Amazon,and it is also available in print from Bottom of The Hill Publishing,and from Old Paths Gospel Press with the title-Groans Of A Lost Soul and a hardcover ed.from Northampton Press entitled 'Sighs From Hell)is one of the greatest evangelistic books ever published.May our Sovereign Lord Jesus be pleased to mightily use it,in this generation,to awaken lost sinners from their slumber,to gather in His elect and to help His people be more effective instruments in His hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book ... 5 Stars 30 Oct. 2013
By Alex F. Koch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book should be preached in every church throughout the world. The problem is most won't preach on Hell today, but when you look at the state of the professing church today it is needed.

I find John Bunyan's books difficult to read but I loved Pilgrim's Progress. This one was just a bit disturbing (as I'm sure it is meant to be).
