Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan


John Bunyan (1628-1688) was a working man with little schooling, a rustic who followed his father as a wandering tinker, mending pots and pans at great houses and villages - and preaching where anyone would listen. In 1660, he was arrested for illegal preaching and non-attendance at his parish church. He spent 12 years in the prison and in 1675/76 he was there again. At some point during the two periods he produced part one of The Pilgrim's Progress.

The Pilgrim's Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come, is the allegorical story of the character Christian's journey in search of salvation (1st part published 1678; 2nd part, 1684). Ten editions of this great work were printed during Bunyan's lifetime, and it eventually became the most widely read book in English after the Bible. Noted for its simple, biblical style, The Pilgrim's Progress is now generally considered one of the finest allegories in English literature, and it has been translated into many languages.
