Meeting in Room 209.
Join us as we read and discuss the timeless Christian classic, Pilgrim’s Progress, by John Bunyan, and its implications on our lives as followers of Christ.
John Bunyan began writing Pilgrim’s Progress while he was in prison for preaching the Gospel in 1660. The completed book was published in 1678 and is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious English literature. It has been translated into more than 200 different languages, has never been out of print, and has been cited as the first novel written in English.
The book is a rich and powerful allegory of a Christian’s life, as he struggles from initial conversion leaving the City of Destruction, through various temptations and hardships along the way, meeting many friends and foes, and finally arriving at the Celestial City. It is a journey that will encourage and inspire you in your own journey of faith.
