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.

As a Gift Feb 6, 2007
This book was packaged in a plastic rap which was very nice as I am giving it as a gift to my Pastor and his wife. I trust they will enjoy it for years to come since they have young children and can pass the book through the families to come.

wonderful and beautiful reprint Feb 2, 2006
worth the value of the print and binding alone, this edition not only has the Pilgrim's Progress (with illustrations) in large print (yeah, no glasses!) but the OTHER works of this brilliant man, including his last sermon preached!
Masterbooks has done us all a wonderful favor. Read the book that Spurgeon read over 100 times in his life. Read it to your children and let them grasp the beauty of the language, and the timelessness of the message.
I think there is no other book in the world where the reader takes the place of the primary character and interprets all other characters as people in his own life...aunts, uncles, friends, former friends, ministers, phoneys, givers, takers, and so on. Read your life story through the brilliant pen of the old tinker from England. No wonder that this was the 2nd most selling book in the English language for generations!
Introduce this to your children via DVD, "Dangerous Journey". My kids love to be read to, and to watch the DVD, chapter by chapter. Enjoy! Thank you to the publishers!
