This autobiographical sketch of Bunyan’s conversion and call to the ministry reads as if he were a character in his own Pilgrim’s Progress. His intense struggle to come to salvation is mostly foreign to us in a day of easy believism. But no convert to Christ could not identify with the relief and joy that comes when sin is finally washed away and peace is made with God. Only Bunyan could tell it in such a way. The account of his imprisonment and death are added at the end of the book.
