Feel like the only person with struggles in the Christian life? Presented in modern English, the immortal allegorical tale of Christian's journey to the Celestial City will remind you of God's grace in helping us to overcome life's trials and temptations.
Retold by James H. Thomas, the best allegory ever written is rewritten in modern English, making it clearer and more forceful to the modern reader (more than 100,000 in print).
James Thomas teaches literature and creative writing in Yellow Springs, Ohio, and co-edited Flash Fiction Forward.
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.
