John Bunyan The narrator speaks briefly in the first person at the beginnings of Part I and Part II but then quickly moves into a third-person account of the pilgrims in which their stories are told objectively, as an outside observer would perceive their actions. Once in a while the narrator becomes omniscient and explains the emotional states of the characters.
John Bunyan Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS traces the journey of Christian from his first conviction of sin, through his conversion, trials, suffering, and victorious joy, and ultimately across the River of Death to the Celestial City. Next to the Bible, the book that I value most is Pilgrim’s Progress. I believe I have read it through at least a hundred times…Prick him anywhere, and you will find that his blood is “bibline,” the very essence of the Bible flows from him. – Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) JOHN BUNYAN (1628-1688) was born of a poor family near Bedford, England. He repaired pots and pans before being called to preach the Gospel full time. He was imprisoned in 1660 for refusing to compromise with the practices of the Church of England. While in jail for 12 years, he penned The Pilgrim’s Progress, which has been in continuous print since then and is the second best selling book of all time after the Holy Bible.
John Bunyan One of the classic spiritual autobiographies, this dramatic conversion testimony by Pilgrim's Progress author John Bunyan features a vivid awareness of God and Satan as personal beings. Throughout his account, Bunyan relies closely on the firm promises of God's Word as a spiritual defence.
John Bunyan Often disguised as something that would help him, evil accompanies Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. As you walk with him, you’ll begin to identify today’s many religious pitfalls. These are presented by men such as Pliable, who turns back at the Slough of Despond; and Ignorance, who believes he’s a true follower of Christ when he’s really only trusting in himself. Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you.
The best part of this book is the Bible verses added to the text. The original Pilgrim’s Progress listed the Bible verse references, but the verses themselves are so impactful when tied to the scenes in this allegory, that they are now included within the text of this book. The text is tweaked just enough to make it readable today, for the young and the old. Youngsters in particular will be drawn to the original illustrations included in this wonderful classic.

John Bunyan Story of two person one a Pharisee, and the other a Publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself; God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this Publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the Publican, standing afar off would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
John Bunyan Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. Like his fellow Puritans John Bunyan was a firm believer in the truth of Paul’s words to Titus: “The grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world” (Titus 2:11-12). God’s people are saved by faith in Christ, in order that they may live a life that pleases God. Faith in God’s grace leads to living a transformed life by God’s grace. Here Bunyan applies this teaching primarily to home and family life. Let him encourage and challenge you to live a more God-pleasing life.
