The Pilgrim's Progress

release date: Nov 17, 2021
The Pilgrim's Progress
John Bunyan was born in 1628, seventeen years after the Authorized Version of the Bible was approved by King James and published (in 1611). Even though the intensity of the persecution of genuine believers was diminishing (in the sense that capital punishment was not as likely), religious freedom remained limited. At the time, clergy were well educated, and there were virtually no legal opportunities for an unlicensed, poor, unsophisticated, nonconformist preacher like Bunyan. Bunyan, a tinker by trade, insisted on preaching not only to closed groups (such as the Congregational Church at Bedford) but also in public (and to great effect); this led to ongoing confrontation with secular and ecclesiastical authorities, which resulted in Bunyan being imprisoned on at least three occasions, for a total of over twelve years behind bars, before eventually being pardoned and licensed to teach. Not only was the cold, dark prison a hazard to his health and a trial to his faith, it also imposed severe hardship on his wife and four children (one of whom was blind). Yet it was while in prison (between 1660 and 1672 and again for six months in 1675) that Bunyan had his famous dream(s) and subsequently wrote The Pilgrim´s Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come in two parts in addition to many other writings. It has been said that John Bunyan had a very simple personal library consisting only of his Bible and a four-volume edition of Foxe’s Book of Martyrs. His inspiration did not come from advanced theological training but from the Scriptures in the light of a very close personal relationship with the Lord. In this volume, note the extensive and virtually unprecedented use of Scripture. This special edition of The Pilgrim´s Progress was born out of my frustrating quest to find an accurate Spanish translation of this work for use in our Latin America ministry. Then, I began to search for an appropriate English edition to serve as the basis for a Spanish translation. Once again, I was stymied. All of the editions I have collected (some plain and some fancy), which have been published over the past one hundred years or so, have also been so edited or abridged that it soon became clear to me that the original intent of the author had been (at least, in certain places) significantly altered. I have not been able to find an edition of The Pilgrim’s Progress published in the past hundred or so years that has not in some way degraded, twisted, manipulated, or even deleted serious portions of the text that did not happen to line up with the modern doctrinal views of the editors (and different editors, in their varying editions, tended to distort entirely separate sections according to their conflicting theological views). Even between my 1832 and 1893 editions significant manipulation occurred, particularly with the author’s notes (early editions have them in the margin; nineteenth century editions and on have them converted into footnotes). By 1893, many notes were missing, or others that were not written by the author had been added. Also, many of the original Scripture references had been deleted or replaced with other references that detracted from rather than strengthened the original argument. Therefore, as our base text, we used a simple, no-frills pocket edition published by R.W. Pomeroy in Philadelphia (1832) in which the original spelling has been somewhat reformed but the Scripture references and footnotes (formerly margin notes) are much more intact. So, what has our editing accomplished? The original style of Bunyan reads half like a screenplay and half like normal dialogue with narration mixed in. Also, things such as capitalization, punctuation, and so on seem to blend according to Bunyan’s own style. We have turned the screenplay parts into normal dialogue and bent or even disregarded some of the modern rules of English so as to preserve the original style and meaning. We have also divided the book into chapters with subheadings to provide added comfort to the reader. We have gone through and solved some puzzles with the Old English, particularly with the slang used in certain parts of England prior to 1660 that, unlike the King James Bible (or even Shakespeare), contained words that are no longer relevant in any dictionary and that were combined in such a manner as to be exceedingly obscure. In other places, I left some “gems” intact because I thought they were so priceless that I could not bring myself to mess with them (also thinking that the reader could probably eventually figure them out). There were, however, places where I simply could not find an exact modern equivalent. Here are two examples or the original and edited versions: 1. As Cristiana and Mercy come up the hill Difficulty, the thirsty pilgrims come to a spring of water that has been deliberately muddied by the feet of some that do not desire for pilgrims to be able to quench their thirst. Original: Thereat Mercy said, “And why so envious, trow?” Updated: At this, Mercy said, “This is unimaginable; why so spiteful?” 2. While Christiana and friends are at the house of Mr. Mnason in Vanity Fair, here is part of the conversation: Original: Then said Mr. Dare-not-lie; “It is true, they neither have the pilgrim’s weed, nor the pilgrim’s courage; they go not uprightly, but all awry with their feet; one shoe goeth inward, another outward; and their hosen out behind; here a rag, and there a rent, to the disparagement of their Lord.” Updated Then Mr. Dare-not-lie said, “It is true. They have neither the pilgrim’s bearing, nor the pilgrim’s courage; they do not go uprightly, but all awry with their feet; one shoe goes inward, another outward; and their trousers are out behind: here a tatter and there a tear, to the disparagement of their Lord. The Pilgrim’s Progress is one of the most read books (after the King James Bible) in the history of the English language. I want my children and grandchildren to be able to read and understand this book according to the fullness of the original intent of the author as part of our accurate, historical Christian heritage that shall continue to bear good fruit into the future.

Embracing the Fear of the Lord

Embracing the Fear of the Lord
Knowing the Terror of the Lord We Persuade Men!As I rewrote this dissertation from John Bunyan, I was experiencing a genuine fear of the Lord. John''s writing caused me to realize how there is a famine of the true fear of the Lord in the body of Christ today. My concern is that even though I have painstakingly rewritten this manuscript into a modern-day version, it will be too deep for many of those in the modern-day church to comprehend.As the 21st century church, we might pride ourselves on modern technology, but we are extremely shallow when understanding spiritual realities. I am not saying this with a critical look at others, but with a deep concern for myself and those, I ministered to. The apostle Paul made an amazing statement to those in Philippians.Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have ALWAYS obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with FEAR and TREMBLING.For those of you who have the courage to read this book, be ready for deep plowing. I daresay this is not a book for the lukewarm and pacifist. Such people will most likely toss it aside within the first couple of pages.There will be rich rewards and transformation for those of you who have the courage to press on to the end. This is a book that you will have to pray that God gives you understanding and a desire to embrace the True Fear of the Lord.

Pilgrim's Progress (Bunyan)
Limited Time Promotional Offer Classic John Bunyan Pilgrim''s Progress The Pilgrim''s Progress is a famous story of man''s progress through life in search of salvation and remains one of the most entertaining allegories of faith ever written. Set against realistic backdrops of town and country, the powerful drama of the pilgrim''s trials and temptations follows him in his harrowing journey to the Celestial City. An enormously influential 17th-century classic, universally known for its simplicity, vigor, and beauty of language. []] Pilgrim''s Progress is read with the greatest pleasure. George Whitefield (1714-1770) []] I find this book so full of matter, that I can seldom go through more than a page or half a page at a time. John Newton (1725-1807) []] Next to the Bible, the book that I value most is Pilgrim''s Progress. I believe I have read it through at least a hundred times... Prick him anywhere, and you will find that his blood is "bibline," the very essence of the Bible flows from him. Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892) []] That tenderest and most theological of books is pulsating with life in every word. J. Gresham Machen (1881-1937) Often disguised as something that would help him, evil accompanies Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. As you walk with him, you''ll begin to identify today''s many religious pitfalls. These are presented by men such as Pliable, who turns back at the Slough of Despond; and Ignorance, who believes he''s a true follower of Christ when he''s really only trusting in himself. Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you. About John Bunyan: John Bunyan (1628-1688) was born at Elstow, England, about a mile from Bedford, and became one of the most influential authors of the seventeenth century. Few writers in history have left such a wealth of Christ-centered writings. Bunyan''s moving conversion is recorded in his Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners. While walking the streets of Bedford, Bunyan heard "three or four poor women" sitting at a door, "talking about the new birth, the work of God in their hearts, and the way by which they were convinced of their miserable state by nature. They told how God had visited their souls with His love in Christ Jesus, and with what words and promises they had been refreshed, comforted, and supported against the temptations of the devil. From these godly women Bunyan learned to despise sin and to hunger for the Savior. Later, while passing into the fields, he recounts, "This sentence fell upon my soul, ''Thy righteousness is in heaven''... for my righteousness was Jesus Christ Himself, the same yesterday, today, and forever." Then "his chains fell off," and he went home rejoicing. Calling to Preach and Arrest In 1655, Bunyan was called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Bunyan was arrested November 12, 1660, for preaching without the approval of the Anglican Church. He was charged with "teaching men to worship God contrary to the law" and was in jail more than twelve years. His most well-known work, The Pilgrim''s Progress, was written while in the Bedford jail. During Bunyan''s lifetime there were 100,000 copies circulated in the British isles, besides several editions in North America. It has been continuously in print since its first printing. Bunyan''s remarkable imagery was firmly rooted in the biblical doctrines of man''s fall, grace, imputation, justification, and the atonement.

All Loves Excelling

All Loves Excelling
Limited Time Promotional Offer All Loves Excelling All Loves Excelling is John Bunyan''s sermon on Ephesians 3:17-18, ''That ye may be able to comprehend with all saints, what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; and to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge.'' It was first titled ''The Saints'' Knowledge of Christs Love'' and is worthy of being ranked alongside Sibbes and deals with a much neglected subject area. From The Forward: This is a new edition of John Bunyan''s treatise on Ephesians 3:17-18 which he himself prepared for the press. It is taken from the second volume of Bunyan''s works (George Offor edition) which was re-published in 1991. The text remains largely unaltered but slight adjustments have been made in order to accommodate the arrangement of the material into chapters. Even these divisions, however, correspond to Bunyan''s own layout of his material. The subject matter of this work which was first preached, is greatly needed today. On the one hand, experiences of the Spirit are being claimed from which the glory of the redeemer and the wonder of his love are quite absent, while on the other, an almost total attention to the understanding and practising of scripture truth is having the effect of marginalising the experiential element in true, spiritual knowledge. Bunyan''s description of Christs'' love to believers and how they ought to know it, cuts in both the above-mentioned directions. From some 440 Bible references he shows how knowing Christs'' love is the message of Scripture and also the essence of heaven, partly possessed and expressed on earth. Those who know it are rich beyond measure and they are the people who ''sweeten the churches and bring glory to God and to religion''.

Prayer

Prayer
Limited Time Promotional Offer Prayer By John Bunyan In this amazing book, John Bunyan defines prayer as the "sincere, sensible, affectionate pouring out of the soul to God, through Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, for such things as He has promised, for the good of the church with submission in faith to the will of God." Written while imprisoned in Bedford jail for nonconformity, these two treatises show Christians the beauty, power, and awe of true prayer. In the first, Bunyan describes prayer as being "in the Spirit", and "with understanding" (1 Corinthians 14:15). In the second, the theme is the Christian''s privilege of approaching "the Throne of Grace" (Hebrews 4:16). Beware! says Bunyan. "You are not a Christian if you are not a praying person. The promise is that every one that is righteous shall pray (Psalm 32:6). You then are a wicked wretch if you do not." Surely this is a serious call to prayer! But he also gives an encouragement: "If [God] had said, I will commune with thee from my throne of judgment, then indeed you might have trembled and fled from the face of the great and glorious Majesty. But when he says he will hear and commune with souls upon the throne of grace, or from the mercy-seat, this should encourage you, and cause you to hope, nay, to ''come boldly unto the throne of grace, that you may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." Surely this is a wonderful word for Christian and non-Christian alike - God is on his Throne of Grace, and He can be approached through prayer! Read this book, and learn of the true biblical understanding of prayer from one of the greatest writers in all history!

Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners
Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he has done unto my soul. (Psalm 66:16) This is a short and honest account of how God demonstrated His exceeding great mercy to His unworthy servant, John Bunyan. This story specifically tells how Bunyan was converted. John Bunyan was a companion of sin and was troubled by sin. He fought temptation and sin in his own strength and lost, and in despair he gave up hope of ever finding God’s mercy; but the Lord Jesus Christ at last delivered him from the guilt and terror that so often and so viciously troubled him. In addition to this, a short account of Bunyan’s call to the work of the ministry is told, along with the trials and trouble he encountered – including some of the difficulties he faced while in prison. This is all taken from his writings and is now published for the encouragement and support of others who are weak and tempted and need strength and hope and victory in Jesus.

The Pilgrim's Progress (100 Copy Collector's Edition)
The Pilgrim''s Progress is a 1678 Christian allegory written by John Bunyan. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious, theological fiction in English literature. It has been translated into more than 200 languages, and has never been out of print. It has also been cited as the first novel written in English. The Pilgrim''s Progress, written during Bunyan''s twelve-year imprisonment although not published until 1678 six years after his release, that made Bunyan''s name as an author with its immediate success. The Pilgrim''s Progress was much more popular than its predecessors. Bunyan''s plain style breathes life into the abstractions of the anthropomorphized temptations and abstractions that Christian encounters and with whom he converses on his course to Heaven. Three years after its publication (1681), it was reprinted in colonial America, and was widely read in the Puritan colonies. This cloth-bound book includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket, and is limited to 100 copies.

The Holy War
More than 100 Original Illustrations Bonus Content: The Life of John Bunyan, by William Brock For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the lords of this age, rulers of this darkness, against spiritual wickedness in the heavens. (Ephesians 6:12) What if you were able to see your life from a spiritual perspective and see the actual reality of the verse above? How does our enemy, Diabolus, plan and carry out his attacks? How do his demons help, and what are their objectives? Why and how must we petition Emmanuel to get His attention and help in this great, holy war? Written four years after The Pilgrim''s Progress, John Bunyan followed up with this second allegorical classic, which has touched hearts and minds of readers for generations. The epicenter of this book is the town of Mansoul, its people (such as Conscience, Self-Denial, and Do-Right), and its gates (Eye-gate, Ear-gate, Mouth-gate, Nose-gate, and Feel-gate). The attack by Diabolus and his demons, all of whom have appropriate names, is carefully planned and executed. As still happens to men today, Mansoul fell hard. Emmanuel is of course willing to help, but can only do so on special, seemingly strict terms. As you watch this intense battle unfold, you''ll be emboldened to fight with new vigilance, to guard the gates with tenacity, and to rely on Emmanuel''s sovereignty like never before. It should be noted that John Bunyan focused not so much on biblical sequence or even perfect accuracy in every aspect. Instead, he honed in specifically on the spiritual battle being waged for each individual soul, filling in other details as needed to create the scenes. In this edition, we updated the text to clarify the meaning of each scene and inserted Bible verses in key areas to bring to light the depth and spiritual meaning of this powerful allegory.

The Holy City
John Bunyan (28 November 1628 - 31 August 1688) was an English Christian writer and preacher, famous for writing The Pilgrim''s Progress. Though he was a Reformed Baptist, in the Church of England he is remembered with a Lesser Festival on 30 August, and on the liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church (USA) on August 29. As his popularity and notoriety grew, Bunyan increasingly became a target for slander and libel; he was described as "a witch, a Jesuit, a highwayman" and was said to have mistresses and multiple wives. In 1658, aged 30, he was arrested for preaching at Eaton Socon and indicted for preaching without a licence. He continued preaching, however, and did not suffer imprisonment until November 1660, when he was taken to the County gaol in Silver Street, Bedford. In that same year, Bunyan married his second wife, Elizabeth, by whom he had two more children, Sarah and Joseph. The Restoration of the monarchy by Charles II of England began Bunyan''s persecution as England returned to Anglicanism. Meeting-houses were quickly closed and all citizens were required to attend their Anglican parish church. It became punishable by law to "conduct divine service except in accordance with the ritual of the church, or for one not in Episcopal orders to address a congregation." Thus, John Bunyan no longer had that freedom to preach which he had enjoyed under the Puritan Commonwealth. He was arrested on 12 November 1660, whilst preaching privately in Lower Samsell by Harlington, Bedfordshire, 10 miles south of Bedford.

The Digital Puritan - Vol.III, No.3
"The Digital Puritan" is a quarterly digest of carefully selected Puritan works which are gently edited to render the text more readable, while still retaining much of the flavour and character of the originals. Helpful notes and Scripture references (in the English Standard Version®) are included as end-notes; no internet connection is needed. Pull on your favourite sweater, pour yourself a hot mug of tea, and settle down by the fireplace to enjoy the following articles in this autumn edition: 1. An Exhortation to Peace and Unity - John Bunyan. In which Bunyan teaches us to leave aside bickering and petty divisiveness, and to pursue Christ-honouring unity while putting others ahead of ourselves. 2. Directions to Fearful, Troubled Christians - Richard Baxter. Ten practical instructions for the Christian who is plagued by doubts. 3. The Monster of Sinful Self-Seeking Anatomized - Edmund Calamy. Stand by as Calamy dissects this gruesome and ghastly monster known as self-seeking. First reprinting since it was originally published in 1655. 4. Thankfulness Required in Every Condition - William Bridge. Once again William Bridge shows us how to find light in the darkest dungeon, and return thanks with sincerity to our loving and wise heavenly Father. 5. The Sin and Folly of Depending on Future Time - Jonathan Edwards. In which Edwards pokes holes in many of our justifications to view time as "idle" or something to "pass" while putting off things of more urgent and eternal importance. 6. The Puritans in Verse: "The Reflection" by Edward Taylor. A private meditation on the Saviour''s beauty (Song of Solomon 2:1).

Pilgrim's Progress Part One

release date: Feb 01, 2011
Pilgrim's Progress Part One
This is a view from heaven onto the world where the artist was born and grew up. His country was a very beautiful land with green forests, crystal clear rivers, and colorful inhabitants. However, the beautiful atmosphere was spoiled by internal conflicts among the ruling government and minority armed groups who sought better autonomy rights and freedoms. The artist’s cousin was beheaded by a rebel group. A neighbor who obeyed the government was arrested by armed men and was forced to carry his bicycle on his back through the mountains for several days. When he reached their jungle stronghold, he was tortured for nearly two months. A Lisu man was tied up in a rice-sack and hung up upside down in a tree somewhere in the jade-land by soldiers, and they watered him until he suffocated and died. A soldier opened fire at a village meeting and killed several Lisu men in Manhkring village. Scars given by them are uncountable, and every scar has a sad story to tell. This illustration depicts a scene of segregation, sufferings, persecutions, torture, and death in a land where Satan’s dominant is real. The armies who are now enjoying a time of greed do not know that the judgment is approaching, that God has his axe ready.
