Description

'The Pilgrim's Progress' written by John Bunyan is one of the most famous and well-read books of the English language.

David Calhoun tells us about Bunyan's life as well as analysing his books and theology. Bunyan was an English Baptist pastor whose influence through 'The Pilgrim's Progress' could be said to have shaped the British and American psyche. Bunyan was more than an imprisoned tinker with time on his hands, he wrote many other books and was a key figure in British history during momentous nation- changing events.

David includes summaries of Pilgrim's Progress (parts 1 & 2), the Holy War, the Life and Death of Mr Badman (Bunyan's alternative to The Life and Death of Christian) and Bunyan's other writings. Useful appendices are included on contemporary places to visit on the trail of Bunyan and how Pilgrims Progress has been adapted for children.

David Calhoun has brought together a beautiful book on the life, works and influence of a famous historical figure.
