The world moves at a frantic pace these days, which is why this guide to the world of John Bunyan can be a greater help than ever. 17th century England was an unsettled place but men like Bunyan sought to bring the healing word of God to it. With this unique guide, you have the opportunity of learning about John Bunyan's life, and of visiting the places where he lived; you can see the sites of the tiny hamlet where Bunyan was born, the church where he preached, and the prison where most of his writing took place. No matter how you approach Bedford, fully annotated maps and clear directions will help you find your way round and really appreciate Bunyan's Bedford, now and then.
Learn about one of the heroes of the Christian faith; his background, conversion and the courageous stand which led to his imprisonment. A guide to Bunyan? A guide to Bedford? Or both? This unique guide does in fact have the distinction of being two books in one. For the John Bunyan enthusiast it is a detailed and fascinating biography. For the travel fan it is a comprehensive and reliable guide to the county of Bedfordshire. With this amazingly compact guide, which contains over 100 color photographs and maps, you will be able to visit the sites that inspired scenes in The Pilgrim's Progress and learn about the men that Bunyan created to characterize in his allegory. The guide also includes background on the Puritans, the Civil War, the ceremony of May Day, the town of Bedford itself, and brief biographies of Oliver Cromwell, Pastor John Gifford, and John Owen. Everything in this book contributes to bringing the 17th century strikingly to life.
