John Bunyan Archive at Chapel Library:

Some say that Bunyan's famous allegory about Pilgrim's journey to the Celestial City has been second only to the Bible itself in the number of copies sold worldwide over the three and a half centuries since it was first published. Sadly, much of what Bunyan wrote has been forgotten. Included here are all Bunyan's Works as edited by George Offor in 1862. Dr. Barry Horner of Bunyan Ministries has provided the PDF files. Dr. Horner has released these files for personal use only. Reproduction, electronic or otherwise, is not permitted without the written permission of Dr. Horner. Worldwide: Please use the online downloads without charge (PDF, get Adobe Reader ). North America: Chapel Library prints several Bunyan works and The Pilgrim's Progress Part One , complete with Offor's notes.

The Imprisonment of John Bunyan

Compiled by Angela Wittman, editor Image from Wikipedia John Bunyan ( /ˈbʌnjən/ ; baptised 30 November 1628 – 31 August 1688) was an English writer and Puritan preacher [1] best remembered as the author of the Christian allegory The Pilgrim's Progress .

A Broken Spirit; A Broken and a Contrite Heart

Posted at The Christian's Report: The following excerpt from John Bunyan’s book, The Acceptable Sacrifice ,contrasts the difference between how God and the world receive a broken spirit and a contrite heart. If you, dear reader, are suffering this day with a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, I pray that this short excerpt would encourage you during this difficult time. ‘THE SACRIFICES OF GOD ARE A BROKEN SPIRIT: A BROKEN AND A CONTRITE HEART, O GOD, THOU WILT NOT DESPISE.’—Psalm 51:17 This psalm is David’s penitential psalm. It may be fitly so called, because it is a psalm by which is manifest the unfeigned sorrow which he had for his horrible sin, in defiling of Bathsheba, and slaying Uriah her husband; a relation at large of which you have in the 11th and 12th of the Second of Samuel.

Puritan Preaching: The Pilgrim's Progress

Image from By Bob McKelvey - Posted at Meet the Puritans : An awesome action pic!

This will serve as an enticing introduction to an approach that remains so relevant in the church today. But first, I have a confession to make. I once said that I would never get on Facebook. I quickly realized one of the reasons Facebook is so appealing to so many is, well, the “faces.” We love to look at pictures. I know that I enjoy seeing my friends, how the years have treated them, and how their children are growing. Hey, I like to see my new "friends" and become acquainted with them. So what does this have to do with Puritan preaching? I wonder what kind of pic you would share with other of your pastor as a preacher? I do not mean a digital image. The picture of which I speak is not a physical but
