Rev. William Landels writes:
The Pilgrim’s Progress is, without question, of all uninspired volumes, the most extraordinary book in the English language. Regard being had to the condition of its author, and the circumstances connected with its production, to its widespread popularity, and its suitableness for readers of every class, there is none to compare with it. It is so well known, that any information concerning either it or its author seems superfluous; and our ingenuity is at a loss to know how to write an introduction for a book for which, above all others, no introduction is required.
This edition features more than 100 illustrations.
John Bunyan (1628-1688) was one of the most influential authors of the seventeenth century. He was jailed for a dozen years for “teaching men to worship God contrary to the law,” during which time he wrote The Pilgrim’s Progress, which has been continuously in print for more than 300 years. Bunyan was a great lover of the teachings of Martin Luther. His conversion experience is found in Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners.
