For three years John Bunyan fought in England’s bloody civil war between Parliament and King Charles I. At 19 he quit soldiering. A pious wife took him to the Bible. By 32 Bunyan had become a literate, fiery nonconformist preacher. Bunyan was thrown into prison for 10 years. He was released, then imprisoned again. He did more than preach to other prisoners. Bunyan, the tinker, the fixer of things broken. made a violin out of tin, a flute from a chair leg. John Bunyan also produced in prison the greatest allegory ever written in the English language. Only the Bible has been printed more. “...an uneducated believer like Bunyan was able to write a book that has astonished the whole world.” C.S. Lewis “...if the ‘Pilgrim's Progress’ did not exist, [Bunyan’s ‘Holy War’] would be the best allegory that ever was written.” Thomas Macauley Pilgrim’s Progress first appeared in 1678. The quest for salvation is in such vivid imagery few readers ever forget Bunyan’s straight and narrow path to salvation. Learn about the man behind this miracle of human imagination!
