A Nonconformist preacher and writer of the seventeenth century, John Bunyan is well known as the author of Pilgrim's Progress, the epic tale of Christian's journey from the City of Destruction to the Celestial City-from unbelief, to repentance and faith, to the trials and victories of life, to heaven. Many people don't realize, however, that Bunyan based the story on his own life, which was full of dangers, obstacles, disappointments, tough decisions, and great encouragements. Simonetta Carr introduces young readers to the story of John Bunyan, from his rebellious youth to preacher of the gospel and prisoner for the sake of Christ. His example of faithfulness to God will inspire readers as they learn about this important figure of church history. Table of Contents: 1. Willful Child, Daring Soldier 2. The Christian's Progress 3.
