More About John Bunyan & Roger Pooley

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.

Bunyan fallecio el 31 de agosto de 1688.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Readers who embark on the quest of completing this book (and see it through), like Christian, shall be richly rewarded!  Mar 17, 2009
I was originally going to title this review, "I Can't Believe I Liked This Book!" I started reading The Pilgrim's Progress as part of a quest to read history's great novels. After making my way through Cervantes's Don Quixote (which took me 82 days), I began reading The Pilgrim's Progress in small chunks, and got through the first 100 pages or so in about two weeks... And then I stopped.

Four months later, I resumed my quest. This time, I committed myself to reading in longer blocks of time. After all, The Pilgrim's Progress consists of two ~130-page Parts, neither of which is broken down into smaller chapter units, so stopping and starting seriously disrupts the flow. Still, I was having difficulty. The language is so archaic and the allegories are particularly hard to follow for someone (such as myself) with virtually no background in Biblical studies. But then a funny thing happened: in attempting to demonstrate the difficulty of the language to my wife, I began reading aloud... And then everything started to sink in, for me! I offer this as a tip to anyone else who at first has trouble getting into the book.

Prior to my experiment with reading aloud, I would often find myself needing to go back and re-read a paragraph or even a half-page. This is not a book that you can read casually -- you must be in deep concentration while reading. The payoff, however, is definitely worth it. This is a tale, after all, that has stood the test of time: the most influential English-language book in all of Christendom.

The story of the more-famous First Part centers around Christian, who was formerly known as Graceless. He has a vision of the destruction of his city (City of Destruction, which is an allegory for the world) and decides to set off on a quest for deliverance -- abandoning his wife and children, who refuse to come with him. This was a difficult part for me: was the author Bunyan advocating the abandonment of one's family in pursuit of religion? Luckily, this was cleared up with the less-famous, but ultimately more rewarding Second Part, in which Christiana (Christian's wife) decides to follow in her husband's footsteps. This part of the book is filled with less adventure, fewer allegories, but instead displays the richness of middle-class Puritan family life in Bunyan's time and disposes of any concern that Bunyan and his book might be anti-family. There's even a short but attention-grabbing section exalting women above men; talking about how it is they who originally followed Christ, while men were afraid or ignorant.

In my second attempt to read The Pilgrim's Progress, I completed the task in eight days. Once I got into the book, the archaism of the language fell by the wayside, and I was able to read it as I would a normal book. I finished the Second Part in two days. I can't honestly give the book five stars, but it deserves a solid four.

In a way, my experience with this book sort of mirrored the difficulties Christian faced in his spiritual quest. I've read of numerous people having difficulty completing the book, so maybe it is best for them to put things into perspective: if Christian could complete the pilgrimage, you can make it through this book! And while your reward for doing so will be nothing in compared to that which Christian received, proportionally speaking, you'll be just as richly rewarded for having completed this classic.
