Michael Daly has brought into one volume two short, yet profound, works of John Bunyan. By presenting these two titles together the reader is provided with two classic works by Bunyan dealing with the believer's journey to heaven. The essence of the author's style is not lost by sensitive editing allowing the modern reader to enjoy these Puritan gems. In this unabridged and lightly edited volume, Christians are enabled to know: What it means to gain access to heaven The way of life that has as its culmination an eternity in heaven What are the dangers, difficulties and discouragements along the road to heaven What a great reward awaits those who persevere to the end
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.
