‘As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I came upon a certain place, and I laid down in that place to sleep. And as I slept, I dreamed a dream.’
One of the most widely read books of all time, John Bunyan’s timeless classic has inspired readers for centuries. Considered to be one of the most important books in the history of English Literature, Bunyan’s heroic Puritan tale has been in print since he first penned it while in Bedford jail for preaching the gospel in 1678. This version, skilfully updated so that it is accessible for the twenty-first century reader, follows the story of Christian, whose pilgrimage takes him through the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair and the Delectable Mountains before he finally reaches the Celestial City.
“Next to the Bible, the book that I value most is John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. I believe I have read it through at least a hundred times! It is a volume of which I never seem to tire; and the secret of its freshness is that it is so largely compiled from the Scriptures. It is really Biblical teaching put into the form of a simple yet very striking allegory.” - C.H. Spurgeon
