John Bunyan has been called the most influential of the Puritans but whilst it is true to say that his books have sold more than any other writer of his era, at the time he wrote them he was a largely unknown itinerant preacher/tinker. Pilgrim's Progress was only published after John Owen gave his recommendation to the printer! Bunyan has a brilliant ability to tell a story with deep theological roots in which you recognise yourself. His allegories convey Christian truth to those without a theological background in a way, perhaps, only matched by C.S. Lewis in a later era.^^

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.
