“What God says is best, is best, though all the men in the world are against it.”

― John Bunyan, The Pilgrims Progress

 

John Bunyan’s “The Pilgrim’s Progress” is one of the most important theological works ever written. Thought to be first printed in 1678, Bunyan began writing this story while in prison for his violations of the Conventicle Act, which prevent holding religious services outside the establishment of the Church of England. It is known that while Bunyan was in prison, his only companions were the Bible and Foxe’s “Book of Martyrs” – thus, the two literary giants in his jail cell certainly influenced the writing of “Pilgrim’s Progress.” A Quaker, by the name of Granger, visited Bunyan in prison and says of him:

“Bunyan, who had been mentioned among the least and lowest of our writers, and even ridiculed as a driveller by those who had never read him, deserves a much higher rank than is commonly imagined. His ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’ gives us a clear and distinct idea of Calvinistic divinity.”

 

Allibone calls this book,

“the best-known uninspired allegory which has been composed by the wit of man.”

 

This mid-19th-century edition includes other works by Bunyan, filled with hand-colored illustrations! (see below for works)
