Author's Bio (see also Wikipedia)
John Bunyan (1628-88) took inspiration for his classic work, The Pilgrim's Progress, from his personal experiences with faith. Bunyan lived a simple life in an English village, subject to the same trials and tribulations as most of his fellow men. Coming to terms with what he felt to be a series of reckless choices in his youth, Bunyan began his spiritual journey fresh with his acceptance to the Baptist Church. His conviction brought him to speak out on religious issues of the day, some of which brought him much trouble and suffering. Undaunted by consequences or disagreement, Bunyan felt he answered a higher calling. When he was thrown in prison for his violation of laws regarding preachers' licenses, Bunyan took the opportunity to write The Pilgrim's Progress. His work would change the face of Christian literature forever, and children and adults alike have taken comfort and inspiration from it for hundreds of years.
