‘It is a masterpiece of piety and genius; and will, we doubt not, be of standing use to the people of God be so long as the sun and moon endure.’ — A. M. TOPLADY

‘Read anything of his, and you will see that it is almost like reading the Bible itself. He had read it till his whole being was saturated with Scripture; and, though his writings are charmingly full of poetry, yet he cannot give us his Pilgrim’s Progress – without continually making us feel and say, “Why, this man is a living Bible!”’ –C. H. SPURGEON

Book Description

Although John Bunyan’s Pilgrim emerged in Puritan dress from the Town Prison on Bedford Bridge in 1676, he has remained to this day, in more than 120 languages, an influence which is almost as wide as Christianity itself. Many explanations are offered for the book’s enduring appeal—the masterly allegory which can charm both child and adult; the great humanness of the characters who, after a few rapid strokes, appear in flesh and blood likeness; the plain, vivid English—and yet all these things are secondary.

Above all, Pilgrim’s Progress is a life story. It depicts the life which Bunyan himself lived and, at the same time, the life with which all Christians can substantially identify themselves. For, as Augustus M. Toplady wrote, the book describes ‘every stage of a Christian’s experience, from conversion to glorification.’ It does so with such abiding relevance because Bunyan’s world of thought is that of the Bible itself.

This re-typeset edition of Pilgrim’s Progress is based on the edition published by John C. Nimmo in 1895. It includes marginal notes and Scripture references, together with the fine etchings by William Strang.

  1. David

    I bought a bunch of these for my friends and me. Banner of Truth’s edition of The Pilgrim’s progress is the best one anyone could pick up. Sturdy hardback, sewn binding, and beautiful high quality paper, and perfect dimensions are some of the things that will make this edition a lifelong friend. Thought about buying another one for myself for backup.

  2. Willem

    Beautiful presentation, especially the illustrations. Ultimately the beauty lies not in the appearance however, but in Bunyan’s brilliant portrayal of the Christian life. It overflows with biblical truth!

  3. Fred

    This is one of my favorite books by John Bunyan. I have listened to it being read more then once and I enjoyed it. It is really well done. I bought more then one copy to give away.

  4. Jeremy

    Great book. Must read.

  5. Robert Norman

    Wonderful allegory of the soul’s journey from worldliness to eternal salvation. Immensely practical and a great story of Christian experience.

    I remember studying the story John Bunyan’s Pilgrims Progress in RE at school when I was a young lad and being very moved by it and also loving the hymn “Who would True Valour See” . It is to my shame then not to have picked it up and read it again until very recently: 30 years later. Therefore I was delighted to come across this edition and even more delighted to see there is a sequel about Christian’s wife and children. I have again been moved by Bunyan’s powerful allegory. It really speaks to one’s soul and gives one a model to live to: both encouragement and gentle prods of the stick too. To complete the package this Banner of Truth edition is an extremely high quality book on good paper with sown bindings which has become something of a rarity these days at least in the UK, so the book lies flat and will last many years. It is definitely worth the money and should be on every Christian’s bookshelf.
