More About John Bunyan

John Bunyan John Bunyan (1628 1688) was born in Elstow, England, and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he believed God had done for a special purpose.

John Bunyan was an English Christian writer and preacher who is best known for his allegorical novel The Pilgrim' s Progress, published in 1678. Bunyan' s faith was profoundly influenced by two books owned by his wife: Arthur Dent's Plain Man's Pathway to Heaven and Lewis Bayly's Practice of Piety, and he turned to preaching following the death of his guide and mentor, John Gifford.

In November 1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve years. Among the many writings he published during his imprisonment are The Holy City, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and the most famous, The Pilgrim's Progress.

After his release, he continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War, Visions of Heaven and Hell, and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Update To A Timeless Classic  May 21, 2008
We were so impressed with this updated version of The Pilgrim's Progress, that we purchased two more copies from this site for graduation presents this past year. While clarifying the old English verbiage, we have seen no evidence of a watering down of the original message or theology in that process. We would wish the same for all modern translations of the Bible, something that most in circulation cannot claim due to their reliance first and foremost on the faulty, little used, hence, older (sic) Alexandrian texts for the New Testament at least. Fortunately, with Bunyan, there is no such controversy about which text(s) to use that we are aware of. While still not easy reading in the sense of depth of the content and the allegories used (think the best modern translation of Les Miserables, great book, but still not "easy" reading), this update takes away 16th Century English as the primary reason to not tackle this inspirational classic.
translatorial malpractice making me cry  May 5, 2008
"Pilgrim's Progress in Modern English" is badly done. It simplifies the words, even perfectly modern words like "den" and "clothed," and proper names, but it can't make Bunyan's allegory or theology more transparent. The vocabulary is decreased, the older prose and newer dialog jar, and some of Bunyan's beautiful images are lost, without making the whole easier.

Changing "Slough of Despond" to "Swamp of Despondence," "What shall I do to be saved?" to "What must I do to be saved?" and removing "The Son of the Blessed is very pitiful" altogether are deal-breakers for me. They're just a sample of beautiful bits that you'll miss out on in this not-that-much-easier version. "Reigns" for "reins upon the neck" in the House of the Interpreter-totally different meaning.

Bunyan is readable without modernification; children have been reading it for centuries now. It's much easier than Shakespeare or the King James Bible, even a good stepping stone to them. The memorable imagery is weakened by the smaller vocabulary. If you do need a modernized version, I suggest you choose it carefully--get a side-by-side edition if possible.
Ooops. Read carefully.  Jan 25, 2008
I expected the same book as the soft cover edition in modern English.
A good story but hard to understand in old English.
Excellent Allegory and Translation, Bad Print and Layout  Jan 22, 2008
I ordered The Pilgrims Progress in Modern English hardcover for my close friends and relatives for Christmas and was very dissapointed to see that the text was tiny, not crisp, and the white space was sparce. A book written for readability was typeset to turn people away. My copy of Pilgrims Progress by a different publisher is far superior. It has a nice updated English text, is well layed out and has handy footnotes for the hundreds of references and explanations. As importantly, the third part of the book includes the Author John Bunyan's spiritual autobiography "Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners" which is excellent to read in stride with Pilgrims Progress.

The Pilgrim's Progress and Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners
A great read!  Mar 12, 2007
I remember seeing this book in my grandparents' home back in the '50's. Always thought it was about Plymouth Rock until I started attending church and found out it was an allegory on the Christian's walk with Christ. I really like the language of this particular book as it makes clear the different stages of the Christian walk. I was not aware of the second part about Christiana, which was thoroughly enjoyable as well. Definitely a keeper.
