The Pilgrim’s Progress: An Allegory (John Bunyan)

$7.95 $3.95

One Man’s Search for Eternal Life

“I am come from the City of Destruction and am going to Mount Zion … My name is now Christian, for my name at the first was Graceless.”
John Bunyan’s classic The Pilgrim’s Progress is an unforgettable allegory of the Christian life. Making his way to the Celestial City, the pilgrim Christian traverses the hill Difficulty, the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and Vanity Fair.  He encounters characters such as Christiana, Hopeful, Mr. Worldly Wiseman, Mercy, and the Giant Despair who lives in Doubting Castle.

Although Bunyan wrote from a prison cell more than 300 years ago, his timeless and perceptive tale of Christian’s pilgrimage to eternal life is as relevant to our own walk with God as ever.

Making his way to the Celestial City, the pilgrim Christian traverses the hill Difficulty, the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and Vanity Fair.  He encounters characters such as Christiana, Hopeful, Mr. Worldly Wiseman, Mercy, and the Giant Despair who lives in Doubting Castle.

Although Bunyan wrote from a prison cell more than 300 years ago, his timeless and perceptive tale of Christian’s pilgrimage to eternal life is as relevant to our own walk with God as ever.

This edition of The Pilgrim’s Progress renders the text almost precisely like the style of Bunyan’s last revised edition of 1688, prior to his going home to the Lord that year.  He knew himself to be a pilgrim in the earth and much of his book reflects his own journey.
