The Pilgrim's Progress, first published in two volumes in 1678 and 1684 and since translated into more than 100 languages, is not only one of the classics of religious writing but one of the great works of all literature. Written while author John Bunyan was imprisoned for leading religious services not approved by the Church of England, this allegorical tale, the story of everyman Christian's journey from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City of Zion, parallels Bunyan's own spiritual odyssey from atheist to devout Christian. The Pilgrim's Progress, Bunyan's seminal work, has been enchanting students of the English language for more than 300 years, and has influenced writers from Louisa May Alcott and C. S. Lewis to Nathaniel Hawthorne to Kurt Vonnegut. It is a must read for people of faith and for the man or woman of letters.About the Author:
English preacher and writer JOHN BUNYAN (1628-1688) is the author of nearly sixty books, nine of which were written while he was in prison for unlicensed preaching. His works include Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners (1666), The Life and Death of Mr. Badman (1680), and The Holy War (1682).
