Since I’ve been traveling to the UK to study Baptist Church history, I’ve been a student of John Bunyan. A good friend gave me this copy of a “Novel” (an historical fiction) about the life of Bunyan. Barr wrote other such histories about figures in history and this one in 1963. I found the historical references to be interesting and accurate, and the story to be realistic. I have been to most of the sites that Barr includes in her book and so I could picture the events happening. Bunyan really did suffer greatly for his faith and yet it was that suffering and endurance that opened the door for his writing, The Pilgrim’s Progress.
