The Pilgrim's Progress and Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners (Vintage Spiritual Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now available together in a single volume, these two classics were written by seventeenth-century Englands most famous prisoner of conscience, Baptist John Bunyan (1628-1688). Imprisoned for twelve years for his preaching, he wrote first a dramatic allegory of Christian life and followed it with the compelling story of his own conversion. Both have been beloved by generations of spiritual seekers and still speak powerfully to modern readers.

Pilgrims Progress recounts the perilous journey of Christian from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City, and in its second part, follows the journey of his wife, Christiana. Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners is Bunyans fervent memoir of his own spiritual regeneration. Both works are enduring masterpieces of English prose, uniting the simple power of Biblical language with the vivid bluntness of untutored speech.

About the Author

John Bunyan (1628—88), originally a tinker by trade, spent many years imprisoned for unlicensed preaching, becoming a hero to the Baptist sect.

W. Clark Gilpin is the former dean of the University of Chicago Divinity School.
