The “Pilgrim” Who “Preaches” from His Grave

In a day when so many young people in the church look to pagan movie stars or other non-Christians as heroes or heroines, we want to bring to your attention the type of person we feel everyone should look up to as one of the real heroes—a hero for the Christian faith: John Bunyan.

John Bunyan was a non-compromiser. In 1660, he became one of the “non-conformists.” After Cromwell’s time of the “Protectorate” ended, England’s lawmakers tried to stop the growth of independent churches.

They forbade preaching by anyone not licensed to do so by the Church of England.

Bunyan was not licensed, but he refused to stop preaching the Word of God and was imprisoned. However, what men meant for evil, God meant for good. It was during one of his jail terms that he began writing the now famous book The Pilgrim’s Progress (the first edition was published in 1678). Over 300 hundred years later, The Pilgrim’s Progress is still a best-seller. This book came from the pen of a hero of the faith who stood on his convictions and would not compromise God’s Word.

Bunyan’s tomb stands in a London graveyard called Bunhill fields. It is alongside a path that thousands walk every day. On each side of his tomb are sculptures which sum up the message of The Pilgrim’s Progress.

One shows the book’s main character, Pilgrim, with the burden on his back, and one shows Pilgrim kneeling before the Cross with that burden falling off his back. What a summary of the gospel that is being “preached” from Bunyan’s tomb every day.

John Bunyan Did Not Compromise

Just as John Bunyan did not compromise, AiG stands upon the authority of God’s Word in Genesis as a witness to the church and the world. And, yes, as you would expect from such a non-compromiser, Bunyan believed in six literal days of creation, as he wrote in his exposition of the first ten chapters of Genesis.

To share more about one of the heroes of the faith so that our children will not forget those who would not compromise God’s Word, AiG is thrilled to present the very special project described here!

We are making available a very unique reprint of a number of Bunyan’s famous works—and, for the first time ever, copies of the from Bunyan’s tomb (sculpted as John Bunyan Bookends by one of our own highly talented Creation Museum sculptors). They’re a tremendous conversation starter, and they “preach” the uncompromised truth of God’s Word—just like the sculptures on Bunyan’s tomb! These special bookends are included in the Pilgrim's Progress Commemorative Collection.

This Collector’s Edition features the original large print creating an easier reading experience for all ages. This masterpiece will become an instant family heirloom, introducing generations to the pilgrim’s spiritual journey to truth. This edition was originally published in 1876. Now, over 125 later, this valuable and rare book has been recreated using state-of-the-art while retaining the original look and feel. Each of the 930 pages have been painstakingly scanned in high-resolution—historic stains and all!
