About the Author

John Bunyan (1628-1688) was an English writer and Puritan preacher best known for his Christian allegory 'The Pilgrim's Progress'. Born in the village of Elstow, Bedfordshire, Bunyan had a relatively humble beginning before rising to prominence as one of the most important figures of 17th-century English literature. His works reflect his deep religious convictions, forged in the tumult of the English Civil War and the complex aftermath that affected religious expression in England. Bunyan's 'The Pilgrim's Progress in Words of One Syllable' is an adapted form of his original 'The Pilgrim's Progress', first published in 1678. This adaptation reflects his desire to make theological and moral topics accessible to a broader readership, including children and those with limited literacy. The allegorical tale journeys through the spiritual experiences of its protagonist, Christian, from a life of sin to salvation. It has been hailed for its simple, direct narrative style and vivid imagery, which have ensured its status as a literary classic. Bunyan's work was revolutionary in its use of straightforward language to express complex religious concepts, and it has been translated into more than 200 languages, testifying to its universal appeal and enduring legacy in Christian literature (Hill, 1994; Sharrock, 1963). His literary style combines a clear, plain-speaking voice with powerful didactic intent, making Bunyan a literary forefather of accessible theological discourse.
