The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan has been a source of encouragement for Christians for almost four centuries now. Lately, however, it has fallen out of style. Most Christians under the age of thirty have not taken the time to read this great classic, and sadly, some have never even heard of it. Yet a hundred years ago there was not a Christian in the Western World who was not intimately familiar with Christian and his journey to the Celestial City.
Brothers and sisters, this ought not to be so. This little devotional attempts to revive a new interest in The Pilgrim’s Progress by explaining some of its most treasured metaphors and analogies. If successful, this devotional will inspire you to read or re-read Bunyan’s original story with fresh insight. It will instruct and challenge you to press on in your own journey, face your own giants, and climb your own hills until the day we cross the Final River or are caught up to meet our Saviour in the air. In the words of John Bunyan himself, “This book will make a traveler of thee, if by its counsel thou wilt ruled be.”
