John Bunyan (1628-1688) was an English preacher and author best known today for his religious allegory The Pilgrim's Progress, which became one of the most published books in the English language in the centuries following Bunyan's death. He spent twelve years in prison for leading religious gatherings other than at the established Anglican parish church. It was during this time in prison Bunyan wrote The Pilgrim's Progress, though it was not published for another six years after his release in 1672.

The print is not very easy to read and some of the writings, especially when Christian makes his "praises" after an event, is so tiny that I could not read all of it. Overall, I was not too happy with the quality and unfortunately, I bought these books to share them with friends.
JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful Allegory!May 9, 2011JessicaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This allegory tells the tell of Christian, a man who sets out from his home in the City of Destruction to find eternal life in the Celestial City. After reading a certain book, Christian realizes that his some town is going to be destroyed by fire from Heaven, but he can't figure out how to save himself or his family or friends. This puts a heavy burden on Christian's back, that he can't get off. He soon meets a man named Evangelist who tells Christian where he must go to be freed of his burden and points him on the road to the Celestial City. Along the way, Christian meets several characters. Some help him on his journey, while others hinder him. Some try to kill him! He also comes to some interesting places, including the Valley of the Shadow of Death.
This is a timeless classic that still touches the lives of many today, though it was written in the 1600's. Every Christian will recognize the places and people along the main character's journey. This book should be read by everyone, especially those who have been disillusioned into thinking that the Bible promises an easy road to Christians. The imagery of the burden on Christian's back is beautiful. The presentation of fellowship along the journey is beautiful as well. The symbolism of the law through Moses is wonderful. I could go on and on. Truly a must read!
