The Pilgrim’s Progress

‘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

A Pilgrim Path

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

Fantastic duo!

The Pilgrim Pack, a compelling duo comprising a paperback edition of the enduring classic The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan and its accompanying biography, A Pilgrim Path written by Faith Cook, offers readers an immersive and insightful journey through the life and literary legacy of one of the most celebrated figures in Christian literature. The Pilgrim’s Progress, originally penned by Bunyan in 1678 during his imprisonment for preaching the gospel, stands as a timeless masterpiece that has captivated and inspired readers for centuries. This edition, thoughtfully updated for the twenty-first century audience, ensures that the essence of Bunyan’s heroic Puritan tale remains accessible and engaging. The narrative follows the protagonist, Christian, on a pilgrimage fraught with challenges, including the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair, and the Delectable Mountains, ultimately culminating in his arrival at the Celestial City. The enduring relevance of Christian’s journey serves as a powerful allegory for the struggles and triumphs of the human spirit in the quest for spiritual fulfillment. Faith Cook’s A Pilgrim Path serves as an invaluable companion, delving into the life of John Bunyan with meticulous detail and a writing style that is both engaging and informative. The biography covers the entire spectrum of Bunyan’s life — from his formative years and experiences as a soldier in the English Civil War to his conversion, subsequent career as a preacher, and the challenges he faced leading to his imprisonment. Cook skillfully weaves together historical context and personal anecdotes, offering readers a comprehensive understanding of Bunyan’s character, the cultural landscape of his time, and the profound impact of his literary contributions. Despite the vast temporal and cultural differences, the enduring themes of suffering, perseverance, and unwavering faith depicted in The Pilgrim’s Progress remain true to us Christians in this day and age. Same with this, Cook’s well-paced narrative of Bunyan’s life in A Pilgrim Path serves as both a historical account and a source of inspiration for modern believers navigating their own pilgrim path. The dual presentation of The Pilgrim’s Progress and A Pilgrim Path by Evangelical Press is a commendable effort to provide readers with a comprehensive and enriched understanding of John Bunyan’s legacy. The synergy between Bunyan’s literary masterpiece and Cook’s insightful biography creates a harmonious reading experience that is both spiritually enriching and intellectually satisfying. If you haven’t read The Pilgrim’s Progress yet or you want to know more about its writer, look no further and grab these excellent volumes from 10ofThose.
