More About john bunyan
John Bunyan (1628 1688) was born in Elstow, England,
and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he
believed God had done for a special purpose.
John Bunyan was an English Christian writer and preacher who is best known for his allegorical novel The Pilgrim' s Progress, published in 1678. Bunyan' s faith was profoundly influenced by two books owned by his wife: Arthur Dent's Plain Man's Pathway to Heaven and Lewis Bayly's Practice of Piety, and he turned to preaching following the death of his guide and mentor, John Gifford.
In November 1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of
Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve years. Among the many writings he published during his imprisonment are The Holy City, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and the most famous, The Pilgrim's Progress.
After his release, he continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War, Visions of Heaven and Hell, and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.

John Bunyan has published or released items in the following series...
I just bought this edition, and was disapointed to learn that it is an updated, modern english edition of the original. I prefer to read books as they were first written, whenever possible.
From the brief comparisons I've made, it seems that this edition comes across somewhat less colorful than Bunyan's original, as the revisionist appears to have tried to simplify the vocabulary rather than merely updating it.
good read Jul 17, 2006
I read this book for a class but I am glad to have read. This book is a great historical read. I found that it helped renew my defences as a christian.
Solid Allegorical Fiction Nov 15, 2005
This is a masterpiece. Believe it or not, in some ways I found it more invigorating than Pilgrim's Progress. Mainly because the conclusion and progression of the tale were slightly less obvious.
Bunyan masterfully illustrates personalities and the conflict/struggle that is going on.
This is great imaginative fiction with good spiritual application. This would be a great book to go through as a group and study/discuss.
Good, Not Great Mar 1, 2003
This is a good book, but not great. If you are like most people, you are probably only aware of Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress". There may be some justification to why most people are not familiar with this book. It is not bad, but it is not in the same league as other classics.
Of course, I like Frank Peretti's more modern tone, but I also allow adjustments for a book over 300 years old (many excellent classics are even older). But, this book goes over and over the same material much too often. Yes, repetition can be good for the soul. But, at some points, I was thinking it was a bit too much. Some of the applications, though, were well presented and in a way you rarely see in books and sermons today. That made it worth reading.
The names given to the individuals were very creative. They get your mind to think how the wiles of the Evil One work their way even today. The end summary is still very accurate: the Evil One will not be contained until God does it, much like God did not take away Paul's "thorn".
A True Masterpiece Jul 21, 2001
I have read this novel before, and it is as good as "The Pilgrim's Progress." John Bunyan shows how Satan constantly tries to keep our souls, and uses all of the tricks in the book to try to keep our souls. This book is for Christians and Non Christians alike, the same is true with the Pilgrim's Progress. John Bunyan knows how to keep you entertained and thinking about what kind of shape your spirit is in. This book is a true masterpiece and is the best book about Spiritual Warfare that I have read so far.
