Christian Life Issues, Volume 1
The Beginning of the Journey
Based on John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress
If truth is food for the human soul, then the hungry soul will be well-fed by The Pilgrim’s Progress. John Bunyan’s classic work has been translated into 200 languages and has never been out of print. Now, for the first time, Christian Life Issues by Dr. Wayne Mack takes this precious allegory and shapes it into a set of valuable lessons.
The first of two volumes containing an exposition and application of chapters 1 through 5 of The Pilgrim’s Progress. Learn what the Bible says about how a person becomes a Christian and the true nature of the Christian life.
“This may yet be Wayne Mack’s most enduring work!”
— Conrad Mbewe, Senior Pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church, Lusaka, Zambia and author of Foundations for the Flock
“If you wish to grow in genuine holiness, re-read The Pilgrim’s Progress together with Mack’s commentary slowly, meditatively and prayerfully.”
–Dr. Joel Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
“If you love The Pilgrim’s Progress but want to delve deeper and unearth its hidden nuggets of truth, I heartily recommend Dr. Wayne Mack’s Christian Life Issues. I view this commentary as an invaluable resource for today’s pilgrim.”
— Cheryl V. Ford, author of The Pilgrim’s Progress Faithfully Retold in Today’s English
“Perhaps the chief benefit of this book is helping the reader to have a fuller understanding of the sufficiency of Scripture while facing life’s most difficult trials.”
— John D. Street, President, Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC) and Chair of the Graduate Program of Biblical Counseling at The Master’s University and Seminary, Santa Clarita, California
