In this spiritual classic, originally published in 1666, John Bunyan traces his spiritual pilgrimage - from the crises of his youth to his conversion, and onward through many trials, temptations and sorrows, until he came to rely solely on Christ for his every need.
This Autobiography dealing with Bunyan's spiritual struggles, recounts the almost painful delicacy of conscience, the events that led to his wrestling with sin, and his conversion. Although at times he despaired of God's mercy, he nonetheless was delivered from guilt and fear through the compassionate mediation of Christ. His first wife bought him to Pious books that set him on the right path. The course of his non-Conformist martyrdom, self-elected and stoically born, is then related. His call to the Ministry, his Tribulations as well as raptures in it, and his experiences during his long imprisonment in Bedford Gaol, highlight the last part of the book.
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 Pilgrims Progress.
After his release, he became the pastor of a church in Bedord, England and continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War; Bunyan's Visions of Heaven and Hell and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.
