Today, we are beginning a new series of messages drawn from the Bible and the classic Christian book, The Pilgrim's Progress, by John Bunyan. John Bunyan was a 17th century English preacher. He was thrown into prison because, during that time, the government had a law that said no one could preach without a license and without being a member of the Church of England. Bunyan abided by neither rule and was thrown into prison for 12 years. During his imprisonment, he conceived Pilgrim's Progress and later wrote it. It has become the most popular Christian allegory in the world, has been translated into over 200 languages, and has never gone out of print.
Pilgrim's Progress is based on the journey that every Christian takes out of their sinfulness and into salvation and then onto the straight and narrow way which ultimately leads to the Celestial City or Heaven. As such, the Pilgrim's Progress is based firmly on the Bible. In fact, annotated editions of Pilgrim's Progress have been published which include the Scripture references for each of the scenarios that the main character faces.
This main character is a man named Christian who lives in the city of destruction.
