The Pilgrim’s Progress from This World to That Which Is to Come is a Christian allegory written by Puritan author John Bunyan in 1678. Bunyan had little education, but his novel is regarded as one of the most significant works of Christian Literature. Pilgrim’s Progress is the second most popular book of all time (#1 being the Bible). The story follows the journey a Christian goes through on the path to deliverance. Below is the modern movie adaptation released in 2008.
Bunyan wrote this novel based on a dream he had while imprisoned for holding religious services outside of the Church of England. The Church of England along with the Roman Catholic Church spent many years oppressing and executing Protestant Christian Reformers who sought to separate the government rule from the church, reform unbiblical traditions and church doctrines, and make the Bible available to every man to read.
