Over three hundred years have passed since the original publication of John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress, but the story of Christian's struggle to avoid temptation and remain hopeful continues to resonate today. This 2-in-1 edition features an updated-language version of John Bunyan's classic allegory, as well as Harold Myra's brand-new, 40-day devotional. You'll see yourself in the title character and his journey, as Christian-the Pilgrim-learns to draw strength from the promises of God and discovers the depth of the love of Christ. The Pilgrim's Progress will show you the immense delight that comes from living faithfully with the Lord.
Harold Myra is president and CEO of Christianity Today International, has taught at Wheaton College Graduate School, and is the author of several books, including Leaders and Surprised by Children. He and his family reside in the Chicago suburbs.
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.
