FREE EBOOK FRIDAY (Pilgrim’s Progress)

November 20, 2015

51DEwVfXCUL._SX330_BO1,204,203,200_If you have read much from this blog, it will not come as a surprise to learn that I like allegory.  Therefore, it will be even less of a surprise to learn that I am a big fan of one of the most famous books of Christian allegory, Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan.

This book is testimony to the fact that while technology might change through the years, basic human nature has remained relatively constant from one generation to the next.  Pilgrim’s Progress was written in 1678 and has never been out of print.  The continued popularity of this story demonstrates that the challenges of Christians in 21st Century are still very similar to those of  the 17th Century, allegory protagonist, Christian.

I ran across a deal that I could not help but pass along.  Pilgrim’s Progress for FREE!  Every self-respecting Christian should own a copy of this classic and here is your chance to get it without having to spend any coin.

    I was surprised the offer was still good. I added a copy to my Kindle. I read this 50 years ago!


  2. I love allegory as well! Pilgrim’s Progress is a favorite.


    • Hey Lydia – Pilgrim’s Progress did set the standard for allegory. It is my favorite as well.


  3. The Pilgrim’s Progress is near the top of my favorites list. In my library I have two copies of it. One is a Marshall, Morgan & Scoot, LTD (London: Edinburgh) copy I picked up years ago at a camp meeting for a song (metaphor-no one wants to hear me sing). The book came from a deceased minister’s library. I’ve read it a few times and have revisited certain scenes in it many times. Because it is an allegory I purchased an updated text titled The New Pilgrim’s Progress. Judith E. Markam did the updating, and Warren W. Wiersbe provides notes that are helpful with the meaning of the imagery and the Reformed doctrine that lies behind it. Bunyan is brilliant in his depiction of Christian’s journey of faith. Pilgrim’s Progress is valuable for the beginning believer to help him/her become aware of the pitfalls and opposition of the world.


    • Thank you so much for your comment. Great information; I am going to start looking for the edition by Markam and Wiersbe. I imagine the commentary on the allegory is very helpful. God Bless! JD


  4. Thank you, JD. I just got it!


    • Hey Rebeca – I hope that you enjoy it. God Bless! JD


  5. This book is not free – it came up at $6.95


    • Hey Ann Marie – That is weird. I just went and downloaded it on another Kindle from Amazon for free. I don’t know why you’re being charged.
