‘As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I came upon a certain place, and I laid down in that place to sleep. And as I slept, I dreamed a dream.’
One of the most widely read books of all time, John Bunyan’s timeless classic has inspired readers for centuries. Considered to be one of the most important books in the history of English Literature, Bunyan’s heroic Puritan tale has been in print since he first penned it while in Bedford jail for preaching the gospel in 1678. This version, skilfully updated so that it is accessible for the twenty-first century reader, follows the story of Christian, whose pilgrimage takes him through the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair and the Delectable Mountains before he finally reaches the Celestial City.
“Next to the Bible, the book that I value most is John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. I believe I have read it through at least a hundred times! It is a volume of which I never seem to tire; and the secret of its freshness is that it is so largely compiled from the Scriptures. It is really Biblical teaching put into the form of a simple yet very striking allegory.” - C.H. Spurgeon
Since first encountering John Bunyan’s works as a child, Faith Cook has had a fascination and love for the writing and life of the author of The Pilgrim’s Progress, one of the best-loved and most widely read books in the history of English Literature.
This well-paced and accessible biography tells the story of Bunyan’s life from his early years, to his career as a soldier in the English Civil War, through to his conversion, life as a preacher and subsequent imprisonment. While Bunyan lived in a very different time, his experience of suffering and perseverance serve as an example and encouragement for believers walking their own pilgrim path today.
“‘I am tempted to say that no one can dig up saints like Faith Cook!’ - Dale Ralph Davis
