John Bunyan (1628-1688) nacio en Elstow, Inglaterra, y su
vida fue salvada en dos ocasiones en sus primeros anos, algo que el
creia que Dios habia hecho con un proposito especial. En noviembre
1660, cuando Bunyan llego para predicar a la pequena ciudad de
Lower Samsell, le informaron de que se habian emitido una orden
para detenerle. Al no estar dispuesto a condenar su vida cristiana
y su llamado al ministerio, fue encarcelado durante doce anos.
Entre los muchos escritos que publico durante su encarcelamiento
estan The Holy City, Grace Abounding to the Chief of
Sinners, y el mas famoso, The Pilgrim's Progress (El
progreso del peregrino).
John Bunyan (1628-1688) was born in Elstow, England, and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he believed God had done for a special purpose. In November 1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve years. Among the many writings he published during his imprisonment are The Holy City, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and the most famous, The Pilgrim's Progress.
