Description

A traveling tinker, John Bunyan accepted long imprisonment rather than give up preaching the Gospel. He explained the life of the Spirit in language the common people could understand and in pictures that stuck in the mind. When he wrote Pilgrim’s Progress, his fame spread rapidly, and within fifty years of his death, the book was reputed to be in most English homes.



John Brown’s biography of John Bunyan remains the standard, despite the lapse of over a hundred years since it was first published. The author was one of Bunyan’s successors as minister of the church in Bedford. He shows that many of the scenes familiar to readers of Pilgrim’s Progress reflect local places and events and personal experience in the trials and joys of the Christian life.

Excellent biography that will stir the soul of any of the Lord's people who wish to read it.
Exceptionally well written, although in a style that modern readers may find a little tedious. Written in a time when the written word was the only form of broad communication, thus it is detailed and thorough. The work is extremely well researched. The author is objective, dismissing the glorification of Bunyan as more than a simple man, yet clearly describing a remarkable man whom the Lord used to declare His gospel and establish His kingdom. It stirred my soul as it recounted Bunyan's life and struggles. This is an excellent biography and shies completely away from being an hagiography.

very detailed
Very detailed and a long biography on Bunyan. But as much as I like details, these kind of details would be for the most part of no use to the present day reader/listener. I believe there is a need today for a new biography on Bunyan, as it was done brilliantly on Newton.
