John Bunyan was born in 1628. In 1644 he was caught up in the Civil War and drafted into the Parliamentary army. Four years later he entered a period of intense spiritual struggle (chronicled in Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners), after which he emerged a new man. He joined a Nonconformist church and began to preach. Bunyan spent many years in prison because of his faith and during this time began writing The Pilgrim's Progress. The first part was published in 1678 and the second part, together with the whole work, was published in 1684. Bunyan died in 1688.
I read this many years ago in print.
The text is very well done and the illustrations are amazing, real paintings, not cartoons, that add to our overall understanding and enjoyment of this great work.
This is an EXCELLENT version because it retains the original unabridged text AND the language thus adding to the beauty and majesty of the work.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. What a creative way to write about the christian walk. My only complaint is with the typographical errors. That is Amazon's problem. Read morePublished 2 days ago by GR

The "content" of the book is great. I don't know if this is for all the copies of this book but my experience with this one was awful. This book is pitiful! Read morePublished 27 days ago by L. A. Mays
