Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Pilgrim's Progress (Part I 1678/Part II 1684) holds a unique place in the history of English literature. No other seventeenth-century work except the King James Bible, nothing from the pen of a writer of Bunyan's social class in any period, and no other Christian work, has enjoyed such an extensive readership. The pilgrim Christian, Mr Worldly Wiseman, Giant Despair, Hopeful, and Ignorance are engaged in a powerful drama set against a solidly realistic background of town and country. Bunyan captures the speech of ordinary people as accurately as he depicts their behaviour and appearance and as firmly as he realizes their inner emotional and spiritual life. The tale is related in language remarkable for its beauty and simplicity, and is spiced with Bunyan's acute and satirical perceptions of the vanity and hypocrisy of his own society.

About the Author

John Bunyan (1628 1688) was born in Elstow, England,

and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he

believed God had done for a special purpose. In November

1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of

Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been

issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith

and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve

years. Among the many writings he published during his

imprisonment are The Holy City, Grace Abounding to the Chief

of Sinners, and the most famous, The Pilgrim's Progress. After

his release, he continued to write and publish stirring works

that have endured through time. Among these classics are The

Holy War, Visions of Heaven and Hell, and Journey to Hell: The

Life and Death of Mr. Badman.

Format: Hardcover
That Pilgrim's Progress is the classic work of Puritan literature goes without saying. If you have never read it, then make the effort to do so with this beautiful edition. Banner of Truth have included all the original marginal notes, plus Pilgim's Progress II (just when you thought it was safe to return to the Slough of Despond!). If you want to buy an original and beautiful gift for someone, this could well be the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Allegory of the Christian's Spiritual Pilgrimage 22 Aug. 2010
By Jessica - pilgrimsprogress dot net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Pilgrim's Progress is a wonderful work written by a 17th-century Puritan, John Bunyan, from his cell prison in a trying time of persecution. Rich in Biblical theology, it is the best-known allegory of the Christian's life. It tells the story of a pilgrim named Christian as he walked a journey from the City of Destruction (where he lived before his conversion) to the Celestial City (an allegory of heaven), sharing with us the many challenges, obstacles, comfort, and encouragement Christian encountered in his long journey. This book reminds me that I, too, am walking in a similar spiritual journey as Christian did.

When I read of Christian passing through the Valley of Humility and falling into the Swamp of Despondence, I'm reminded of those times when I, too, was in such a swamp and valley, and how God graciously used those trials to humble, comfort, and rescue me.

The Pilgrim's Progress reminds me and encourages me with the Biblical promise that regardless of what deep valleys I may be in, whatever swamps I fall into, whatever rough roads I tread, whatever rivers to ford, or whichever steep hills I may be climbing in my own life journey ... my Guide is ever watchful, my Deliverer unfailing, and He is indeed faithful in keeping and persevering all of His elect in the faith till they arrive to their final destination at the Celestial City--that glorious, everlasting City that is so different than the one I've traveled from and "built not by the hands of man." Every Christian can learn and be encouraged from the Biblical doctrines taught in this story.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Book of All Time! 14 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have read this book many times, and I never get tired of it. Each time I come across a treasure of truth I did not capture in the previous reading. I have given this book as a gift to five people out of love for them and as a guide for their spiritual purposes. I am disappointed many bookstores do not carry this book, for they are depriving people access of one of the greatest stories ever told.
