The Pilgrim’s Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come; Delivered under the Similitude of a Dream is a Christian allegory written by John Bunyan (1628 – 1688) and published in February1678. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature.
John Bunyan could be said to have authored one of the most influential books in the English language. But ‘The Pilgrim’s Progress’ is so much more than an historical novel.
Bunyan’s plan for his readers is for them to travel through this book as an adventure through the Christian life. The story of Christian and his companions has been a favourite for generations. John Bunyan’s imaginative text brings out the same, practical, necessary lessons that everyone needs to know – both today and yesterday.
