About the Author:

John Bunyan (/ˈbʌnjən/; baptised November 30, 1628 – August 31, 1688) was an English writer and Puritan preacher best remembered as the author of the Christian allegory The Pilgrim's Progress. In addition to The Pilgrim's Progress, Bunyan wrote nearly sixty titles, many of them expanded sermons.

Bunyan came from the village of Elstow, near Bedford. He had some schooling and at the age of sixteen joined the Parliamentary Army during the first stage of the English Civil War. After three years in the army he returned to Elstow and took up the trade of tinker, which he had learned from his father. He became interested in religion after his marriage, attending first the parish church and then joining the Bedford Meeting, a nonconformist group in Bedford, and becoming a preacher. After the restoration of the monarch, when the freedom of nonconformists was curtailed, Bunyan was arrested and spent the next twelve years in jail as he refused to give up preaching. During this time he wrote a spiritual autobiography, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and began work on his most famous book, The Pilgrim's Progress, which was not published until some years after his release.

Bunyan's later years, in spite of another shorter term of imprisonment, were spent in relative comfort as a popular author and preacher, and pastor of the Bedford Meeting. He died aged 59 after falling ill on a journey to London and is buried in Bunhill Fields. The Pilgrim's Progress became one of the most published books in the English language; 1,300 editions having been printed by 1938, 250 years after the author's death.

He is remembered in the Church of England with a Lesser Festival on 30 August, and on the liturgical calendar of the United States Episcopal Church on 29 August. Some other churches of the Anglican Communion, such as the Anglican Church of Australia, honour him on the day of his death (31 August).


Hungarian Summary:

Keresztyén, az örök életet kereső ember, zarándokol ebben a világban, amely tele van veszélyekkel, csábító kísértésekkel, gyötrő bosszúságokkal. Ez A zarándok útjának története röviden, mely John Bunyan főműve, a protestáns irodalom talán legismertebb alkotása. Népszerűségét jelzi, hogy több mint 400 nyelvre fordítottak már le, köztük magyarra is, és jelentős írókra (mint pl. Móricz Zsigmond vagy Veres Péter) volt hatással. A könyv olvasói hamar ráébrednek, hogy míg Keresztyén élete csak példázat, az övék nem, és olvasás közben maguk is megtanulják elkerülni a csapdákat és veszélyeket, melyek útjuk során leselkednek rájuk.

A kötet másik írása Bunyan önéletrajza, istenkeresésének története. A Bővölködő kegyelem bemutatja alacsony származását, életét, hitre jutását, és elbeszéli sok bizonyságát is. Évszázadok távolából is elevenen szólnak hozzánk tanácsai.


English Summary:

For 300 years, The Pilgrim's Progress has remained perhaps the best-loved and most read of devotional fictions. In plain yet powerful and moving language, Bunyan tells the story of Christian's struggle to attain salvation and the Gates of Heaven. He must pass through the Slough of Despond, ward off the temptations of Vanity Fair, and fight the monstrous Apollyon. In Part II, his wife and children follow the same path, helped and protected by Great-heart, until for them, too, "the trumpets sound on the other side."

Though he is perhaps best known for his work Pilgrim’s Progress, one of the essential pieces of Christian allegory, John Bunyan’s Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners is equally stirring, particularly when the author’s backstory is made clear. Composed while he was serving a decade-long sentence in prison, Grace Abounding has inspired readers to turn over their problems to Christ as a way of letting go of their greatest doubts, much in the same way that John Bunyan did as he faced 12 years behind bars — for preaching without a license, of all offenses.
