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.

QUOTE (John Bunyan) – Feb 18

February 18, 2014

John Bunyan

“God’s grace is the most incredible and insurmountable truth ever to be revealed to the human heart, which is why God has given us His Holy Spirit to superintend the process of more fully revealing the majesty of the work done on our behalf by our Savior. He teaches us to first cling to, and then enables us to adore with the faith He so graciously supplies, the mercy of God. This mercy has its cause and effect in the work of Jesus on the cross.”
~ John Bunyan

In honor of John Bunyan, whose book Pilgrim’s Progress was first published in England on this day in 1678.

QUOTE (John Bunyan) – Jan 21

January 21, 2014

John Bunyan

“Conversion is not the smooth, easy-going process some men seem to think… It is wounding work, this breaking of the hearts, but without wounding there is no saving… Where there is grafting there will always be a cutting, the graft must be let in with a wound; to stick it onto the outside or to tie it on with a string would be of no use. Heart must be set to heart and back to back or there will be no sap from root to branch. And this, I say, must be done by a wound, by a cut.”
~ John Bunyan

In honor of John Bunyan, author of The Pilgrims Progress, who was called to pastor a Church Bedford, England. He is in prison at the time for preaching.

John Bunyan

“This hill, though high, I covet to ascend;
The difficulty will not me offend.
For I perceive the way to life lies here.
Come, pluck up, heart;
let’s neither faint nor fear.
Better, though difficult, the right way to go,
Than wrong, though easy,
where the end is woe.”
~    John Bunyan,    The Pilgrim’s Progress

In honor of John Bunyan, author of The Pilgrim’s Progress, who was born on this day in 1628.
