John Bunyan-writer, whilst in prison, of one of the most famous and well-read books of the English language. An English Baptist pastor whose influence, through "The Pilgrim's Progress," could be said to have shaped the psyche of the entire English-speaking world.

Publisher's Description

'The Pilgrim's Progress' written by John Bunyan is one of the most famous and well-read books of the English language.

David Calhoun tells us about Bunyan's life as well as analysing his books and theology. Bunyan was an English Baptist pastor whose influence through 'The Pilgrim's Progress' could be said to have shaped the British and American psyche. Bunyan was more than an imprisoned tinker with time on his hands, he wrote many other books and was a key figure in British history during momentous nation- changing events.

David includes summaries of Pilgrim's Progress (parts 1 & 2), the Holy War, the Life and Death of Mr Badman (Bunyan's alternative to The Life and Death of Christian) and Bunyan's other writings. Useful appendices are included on contemporary places to visit on the trail of Bunyan and how Pilgrims Progress has been adapted for children.

David Calhoun has brought together a beautiful book on the life, works and influence of a famous historical figure.

Author Bio

David B. Calhoun is Professor of Church History at Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri. He studied with Francis Schaeffer and has led international ministry organisations in America and Europe. Among his writing credits is the definitive 2 volume history of Princeton Seminary.

    I loved it. I used it as a source for an author research paper in school and it served me well. It gave me an excellent overview and a lot of insight into Bunyan's life and how his life influenced his books. I am 15 and I found it easy to read and interesting enough to keep me from falling asleep!
