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.

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.

    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!
