I thought I'd share some of the books I've been reading and some that i greatly have benefitted from over the years. Here is a current treasure that I found at a rummage sale for $0.10!
The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan
A story about a man named Christian who is fleeing his native country because of certain destruction. He pleeds with his family to run away with him in search of the celestial city where it will be safe. But alas his family ignores his plees and dismisses him as crazy. Chrisitan continues his journey despite his families and neighbors arguments and schemes to get him to return home. There are many difficulties and many a good fellow along the journey. Does Christian arrive to his destination? Will others flee the coming destruction? Read for yourself my friends...
This is a book I will read and re-read throughout my life. It really explains the life of a Christian and if you are willing it will point you to the way of salvation. Scripture is reference throughout the book and it is very rich in content.
John Bunyan wrote this great work in1673 while he was in prison. It's a great story in itself that he was placed in jail for first preaching without a license and second for cancelling his previous Declaration of Indulgence. This was a time of continued Reformation and the struggles therein.
I highly recommend this book!
