Only the Bible has sold more copies than The Pilgrim’s Progress. John Bunyan’s classic, first published in 1678, quickly became a hallmark among Christian readers in the English-speaking world and beyond, enduring down to our day as a unique resource for spiritual edification. The story is an allegory transformed into intense drama, its characters superbly individualized, indelibly alive, and as memorable as the landmarks on Christian’s perilous journey toward salvation.
The Book Club’s discussion of The Pilgrim’s Progress will take place on Friday, March 31 at 12:00 in the Library Conference Room. Dr. Peter Fraser, professor of literature and film, will lead our discussion. Distance students and faculty are invited to join the discussion via Google Hangouts.
