John Bunyan (1628 1688) was born in Elstow, England,
and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he
believed God had done for a special purpose. In November
1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of
Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been
issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith
and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve
years. Among the many writings he published during his
imprisonment are The Holy City, Grace Abounding to the Chief
of Sinners, and the most famous, The Pilgrim's Progress. After
his release, he continued to write and publish stirring works
that have endured through time. Among these classics are The
Holy War, Visions of Heaven and Hell, and Journey to Hell: The
Life and Death of Mr. Badman.
