Pilgrim’s Progress – A Study on the Book by John Bunyan

A Walk Through John Bunyan’s book of
“Pilgrim’s Progress”

A Study by Kevin Johnson
Grace Bible Church

Tulsa, OK

During this study, we used the published version from Bridge Logos
“The Pilgrim’s Progress in Modern English”

This book is as relevant today as it was when John Bunyan wrote it while in his cell in the Bedford County Jail. The Pilgrim’s Progress is the story of every Christian– from the first stirrings of the Holy Spirit beckoning us to follow Christ, to our final arrival in the Celestial City of God.

Through the centuries, no book has better told the struggles and temptations faced by every Christian, with a promise for a final and glorious victory. At one time no home was considered to be Christian if it did not have a Bible, Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, and The Pilgrim’s Progress.

You may well be challenged and trained by the invaluable teaching and the depth of doctrine in this book.

Discover the book that ranks 2nd only to Bible

“The Pilgrim’s Progress”: Was written by John Bunyan from a prison cell in 1675 at the age of 50. It is the result of a dream he had during a brief re-imprisonment. This book has become the most famous allegory in English literature. Written almost 350 years ago, this book has been read in prim parlors, in sophisticated drawing rooms, in royal households, in religion classes, in schoolrooms, in family worship– and still it is read by all those who would themselves be the pilgrim we are instructed to be.

“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;”
1 Peter 2:11 KJV

There is no argument John Bunyan is the best-selling human author of all time. He was a 17th century tinker– a mender of pots and pans– and wrote his greatest works while imprisoned for his Christian beliefs.

His “Pilgrim’s Progress” is second only to the Bible in the number of copies it has sold worldwide. It has even been called “the second best book in all the world.”
