About "The Pilgrim's Progress: Modern English Edition"
John Bunyan's timeless classic of the Christian's dangerous journey through this valley of tears has been read and loved since he first penned it while in Bedford jail for preaching the gospel. First published in 1678 it has been in print ever since. This version keeps the flavour of Bunyan's original but has been gently and skilfully updated so that it is fully accessible to the twenty-first century reader.The great Victorian preacher Charles Spurgeon said of this book:Next to the Bible, the book that I value most is John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. I believe I have read it through at least a hundred times! It is a volume of which I never seem to tire; and the secret of its freshness is that it is so largely compiled from the Scriptures. It is really Biblical teaching put into the form of a simple yet very striking allegory.This edition has been produced by EP in co-operation with Grace Gems (gracegems.org), who provided the text.
Meet the Author
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.
