#OctTBR2022 Day 14: “The Pilgrim’s Progress” by John Bunyan

[What is #OctTBR2022? I explain it here.]

What It Is: A 400-year-old allegory of the Christian life, written by an evangelical minister while he was imprisoned for not conforming to the state-mandated religious regulations.

Why I’m Reading It: I’ve read this book a few different times in my life (as you can tell by my much-worn copy of it), and every time I feel like I gained from it. It’s been about 8 years since my last reading of it, so I feel like I’m about due. It’s a pretty divisive choice, even among conservative/reformed evangelicals; some folks love it, while others just don’t enjoy it at all. I’m in the “love it” camp. (If you don’t enjoy it personally, I would suggest trying this outstanding dramatized version in podcast form.)

Have you read The Pilgrim’s Progress before? If so, how often? If not, why not? I’d love to hear from you in the comments.

Also, go ahead and wish me a happy birthday (and if you’re so inclined, buy me a coffee). Today I’m old enough to have the answers to life, the universe, and everything (if Douglas Adams is to be believed).
