The Top 100 Inspirational Books: 20 - 11
11 - Pilgrim's Progress
Christian allegories are common today, but in
the 1600s they were a rarity. In four
hundred years, none have been able to top the Pilgrim’s Progress. The book, an undisputed part of Christianity,
follows it’s “everyman” character Christian through his life of trials,
burdens, and choices. It is an endearing
walk through Bunyan’s theological beliefs, culminating in a gleeful, yet
poignant, conclusion. While the book is
a feat of inspiration, the story behind it is just as much so. Bunyan wrote the tale while in prison for
hosting a then-illegal church services outside of the Church of England. He wrote until he was free the end result has
gone on to inspire millions.
