Most folks know I am a huge fan of The Pilgrim’s Progress, it is the most published secular book ever, and second, only to the Bible, in total printings. I have posted on it in the past, John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, Today in Church History, On This Date In Church History, A Picture of a True Minister (from John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress), and The Pilgrim’s Progress with Dr. Derek Thomas.
Today a modern take on the classic from Prager U’s book club. Note copies of Pilgrim’s Progress can be purchased from Reformation Heritage Books and Solid Ground Christian Books located in the “Academia” column on the right of your screen.
Christians have been mocked, humiliated, and persecuted for their faith for hundreds of years. The Pilgrim’s Progress, written by Puritan preacher John Bunyan while he was in prison for holding religious services, is an encouraging reminder that difficulties and hardships are part and parcel with a life of faith. Allie Stuckey joins Michael Knowles to discuss how this seminal 17th-century work can embolden and strengthen Christians to endure the hardships of today.
