Overview

The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan

Often rated second in importance to the Bible as a Christian document, this famous story of man's progress through life in search of salvation remains one of the most entertaining allegories of faith ever written. Set against realistic backdrops of town and country, the powerful drama of the pilgrim's trials and temptations follows him in his harrowing journey to the Celestial City. Along a road filled with monsters and spiritual terrors, Christian confronts such emblematic characters as Worldly Wiseman, Giant Despair, Talkative, Ignorance, and the demons of the Valley of the Shadow of Death. But he is also joined by Hopeful and Faithful. An enormously influential seventeenth-century classic, universally known for its simplicity, vigor, and beauty of language, The Pilgrim's Progress remains one of the most widely read books in the English language.

About the Author

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.

Was suppose to be Pilgrim's Progress, but when downloaded, was actually The Pilgrimage of Etheria by M L McClure. I was very disappointed.

the cover may say pilgrim's progress, but the inside is something else. A huge disappointment.

I love "Pilgrim's Progress" by John Bunyan and wanted to purchase a digital version to read on my Nook. When I purchased the $0.99 version of the book, I ended up with "The Pilgrimage of Etheria" By M.L. McClure. To make sure the same thing doesn't happen to you, please preview the book and make sure you are getting what you are paying for!
