Monthly Book Giveaway~~The Pilgrim's Progress

Oh, I am so happy to continue these Monthly Book Giveaways! I had taken a break from them for awhile during a season of transition in my life but I am so excited to return to them now! I pray that they will bless you as they have blessed me. The only thing better than reading a good book is being able to share that book with another precious soul. :-)


And so, without further ado, this month's giveaway is for a copy of John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress. This tremendous book has been used by the Lord in the hearts and lives of so many countless believers. Indeed, it is amazing how the Lord works His greatest beauty through times of trial and adversity. Bunyan wrote this book in prison, suffering for the Lord's sake, and its beautiful message still resonates with believers today on a worldwide level. 

Brief description of The Pilgrim's Progress (from CBD):

Once the most deeply cherished book in English-speaking households other than Bible itself, John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress is the allegorical tale of Christian the pilgrim on his journey to the Celestial City. Along the way, Christian encounters both worthy companions and dreadful adversaries. Although this book was written more than three hundred years ago, this stirring spiritual narrative still bears the power to challenge and encourage readers on their own spiritual journeys.

    1. Lil, I remember my Mom reading it to me and my sisters as a child and just being so fascinated by it. Then, later in my life I read it and was struck by it afresh.

      I'm glad that you visited; the Lord bless you!

  8. Hi Rebekah,
    One of my favorite books! I read it early on during my college years and I marvel at the strength of the story and how skillfully it is woven!

    1. Valerie; I agree with you! I think that it was Charles Spurgeon who said that Bunyan's blood was "Bibline" (everything he said was laced with the truth of Scripture).

      Have a blessed week, Valerie!
