Summary

Summary

A traveling tinker, John Bunyan accepted long imprisonment rather than give up preaching the Gospel. He explained the life of the Spirit in language the common people could understand and in pictures that stuck in the mind. When he wrote The Pilgrim’s Progress, his fame spread rapidly, and within fifty years of his death, the book was reputed to be in most English homes.

John Brown’s biography of John Bunyan remains the standard, despite the lapse of over a hundred years since it was first published. The author was one of Bunyan’s successors as minister of the church in Bedford. He shows that many of the scenes familiar to readers of The Pilgrim’s Progress reflect local places and events and personal experience in the trials and joys of the Christian life.

“Mr. Brown deserves our sincere thanks for so valuable an addition to English literary biography as this volume has given us...it is a work that needed doing, and Mr. Brown has done it well.” Saturday Review, 1887
“In this handsome volume, so lovingly and judiciously made, we have a vivid picture of English history, a fascinating biography, and a critical evaluation of all of Bunyan’s literary work...In the literary parterre of Bunyan biographies, we have here a seek-no-further.” Critic, 1900
“The book leaves nothing to be desired. It is the most complete and reliable guide to the life and work of one of the chief of our English immortals.” London Quarterly Review, 1903
“Mr. Brown has shown a scholar’s diligence and discretion in collecting and discussing whatever might clear our conception of the man and his period.” New Princeton Review, 1886
