Published in 1678, John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress is one of the best-known Christian allegorical novels ever written. Believing deeply that he has led a sinful life, Christian undertakes a pilgrimage in search of the Celestial City. Throughout his journey, he faces personal trials, great danger, and experiences moments of joy during which he comes to understand the spiritual realm and his place in it.

Written during John Bunyan’s incarceration for preaching without a licence, The Pilgrim’s Progress has since been translated into more than two hundred languages and has never been out of print.
