Item Description...
Overview
One of the most significant works in Czech literature, this is a new English translation of an allegory of the spiritual journey as experienced by a 17th-century pilgrim. Comenius (1592-1670) was the pastor and spiritual leader of the Bohemian by the Hussite movement of the 15th century.

Publishers Description
Volume 90 in the Classics of Western Spirituality series represents the culmination of the literary accomplishments of John Comenius (1592-1670), pastor and leader of the Bohemian Brethren (Unitas Fratrum), a Czech Protestant group inspired by the Hussite movement of the fifteenth century.

This work, written against the calamitous background of the Thirty Years War, and Comenius' profound personal sufferings, comprises two parts. Part one, "The Labyrinth of the World, " is an allegory describing a pilgrim's search for meaning as he surveys the classes and occupations of 17th-century Europe. He is disillusioned at every turn. In part two, he turns inward where he finds "the paradise of the heart, " and experiences true hope in relationship with Jesus Christ.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Life in action  Jan 28, 2004
Interesting how a man whose life reflected the turmoil of his day. As Solomon said, all is vanity. Comenius writes from many of his own experiences. He saw his family taken away from him, he had to flee numerous times. He basically invented modern education. Here is a book, written so long ago, yet so important for our day.

Do we ever stop to ask why we do what we do and why we choose what we choose? Is there a better choice? Comenius was offered the Presidency of Harvard University in his day. Here is a man who survive, neigh, conquered in his life. You will be glad you read this book.

 
Shorter and better than Pilgrim's Progress  May 28, 1999
I enjoyed this book by the Father of Modern Education more than Pilgrim's Progress. I easily identified the many twists and turns that people make before they find spiritual insight. A must read.
 
Thought-provoking book.  Mar 6, 1999
Why should you read a book written in 1623? Because, this book is special. Comenius wrote with an uncanny ability to see life as it really is. In an allagorical genre (as Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress), it is fast moving, interesting and thought-provoking. The author will grab you and bring you along with him as he searches the world for true wisdom and true happiness. This book is simply unforgetable. On par, but of different genre, with Augustine's Confessions.
