About This Item

1881 Elstow ed John Bunyan Pilgrim's Progress Illustrated Engravings Oak Binding

"What God says is best, is best, though all the men in the world are against it."

― John Bunyan, The Pilgrims Progress

John Bunyan's "The Pilgrim's Progress" is one of the most important theological works ever written. Thought to be first printed in 1678, Bunyan began writing this story while in prison. It is known that while Bunyan was in prison, his only companions were the Bible and Foxe's "Book of Martyrs" – thus, the two literary giants in his jail cell certainly influenced the writing of "Pilgrim's Progress." A Quaker by the name of Granger visited Bunyan in prison and says of him:

"Bunyan, who had been mentioned among the least and lowest of our writers, and even ridiculed as a driveller by those who had never read him, deserves a much higher rank than is commonly imagined. His 'Pilgrim's Progress' gives us a clear and distinct idea of Calvinistic divinity."

Allibone calls this book,

"the best-known uninspired allegory which has been composed by the wit of man."

This 1881 'Elstow edition' is bound in oak-wood boards taken from the Elstow Church (BUNYAN'S CHURCH) prior to its restoration in 1880.
