John Bunyan: The Time is early evening, November 12, 1660. Just moments before, the master of the house had taken him aside and in agitated voice said, "Oh Mr. Bunyan, there is a warrant out against you, and the officers are on the lookout for you. We cannot have our meeting! ... You must leave!" "What, brother!" says Bunyan. "Go away and not have the meeting!" "Oh yes, Mr. Bunyan, they are in search of you, and they'll have you in prison if they can find you." "What if they do? I will by no means stir, neither will I have the meeting dismissed for this." And so the next 12 years were spent in a loathsome dungeon surrounded by profligates and felons. Yet in that dismal den, John Bunyan breathed the very atmosphere of heaven and there he wrote that immortal classic that we know as The Pilgrim's Progress. A book that has been translated into more languages, been published in more editions and changed more lives than any other non-biblical book in history.

Meet the Author

John Bunyan

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.

Great edition of a timeless classic
5 stars By Geoff, Dec 10 2014
Our church has found this edition (amongst many others that we considered) to be the most helpful edition of the timeless classic. We were looking for one that is easily readable in modern English, and yet faithful to the original story. As a bonus, the illustrations are well done. We were also keen on a hardback, so as to be make an enduring gift for people. We use it as a gift for many of our new church members.

A wonderful and insightful story
5 stars By Charles, Dec 11 2013
The Pilgrim's Progress is a fantastic classic story, following the journey of 'Christian' as he travels to the Celestial City. It is amazing how often a story written so long ago can still resonate in today's culture. The original story is only made better by this edition from Crossway. Three main things enhance it: 1) the editing is particularly good, both staying true to the words of Bunyan whilst updating the language to read more easily, replacing words that we don't use anymore with more common ones, 2) the notes at the back of the book are great for further explanation to some of the images used by Bunyan and what they represent, 3) the illustrations provided for this edition bring the story to life and add character in depicting the world that Bunyan may have envisioned. I highly recommend both the original story and this particular edition.
