Though it's been in print for over 300 years, the elements of Bunyan's classic masterpiece---a pilgrim, a treacherous road, dishonest and truthful guides---haven't lost their relevance. Journey along with Christian as he faces many trials on his way to the Celestial City---and you'll be amazed how much his encounters parallel your own! 336 pages, softcover from Signet Classics.
It is a masterpiece of religious allegory transformed into intense drama, its style unsurpassed, its characters superbly individualized, indelibly alive, and as memorable as the landmarks on Christian's perilous journey toward salvation.
John Bunyan was born in 1628. In 1644 he was caught up in the Civil War and drafted into the Parliamentary army. Four years later he entered a period of intense spiritual struggle (chronicled in Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners), after which he emerged a new man. He joined a Nonconformist church and began to preach. Bunyan spent many years in prison because of his faith and during this time began writing The Pilgrim's Progress. The first part was published in 1678 and the second part, together with the whole work, was published in 1684. Bunyan died in 1688.
the work of a great creative writer.
