Overview

This spiritual classic, originally published in 1666, is in some respects similar to Augustine's Confessions. Bunyan traces his own spiritual pilgrimage from youth, through several crises, to his conversion. Through many trials, difficulties, temptations, and sorrows, he comes to rely solely on Christ for his every need. Written in prison, it served as an epistle of encouragement to his congregation. Bunyan's moving story of his conversion has become spiritual food for countless others.

John Bunyan

John Bunyan (1628–1688) is one of the most prominent Puritans of all time. Bunyan was well known as a respected preacher during his lifetime and remembered through his writing to this day—namely The Pilgrim's Progress.

After joining the Bedford Baptist Church of Bedford, England, in 1654, Bunyan began preaching in nearby villages. He was prosecuted under an Elizabethan act against nonconformity and imprisoned for three months which was extended to twelve years. Bunyan became the pastor of St. John's Church the same month as his release from prison.

The author of more than 60 books, Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress, Holy War, and his autobiographical book Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, gained a prominent and unique place in history. The Works of John Bunyan (3 vols.) includes 61 Bunyan-penned classics.

    A great work on the power of Grace appropriated to sinners. It helps those who believe that their faith is somehow enhanced by their efforts. Truth is...its not about use but rather it is about God and His acts in our lives.

    Precious! If you ever end up in such a severe spiritual struggle that you doubt your sanity, this book is a lifesaver. Nothing is more encouraging than seeing the giant of faith John Bunyan getting into same mental straits and traps as yourself and being delivered time and again by the Word of the Living God. Cannot recommend it enough!
