Class Description

We will begin with breakfast at 6:30 and start our study at 7:00. Our class time will be spent reviewing the homework assignment.

Class Work

You will be assigned a section of the book to be read in preparation for the next class. There will be a homework paper related to each assigned reading. It is important to come to class with your reading done and the assignment completed. This will make the class time more profitable.

First Class

We will begin September 8th. The first reading assignment is the Preface, pages vii-xiii. There will not be an accompanying homework paper for this first class. We will use this first class to introduce the book, lay out the reading schedule, explain the homework process, and give the reason for this study. We are looking forward to beginning this journey with you.

Why Pilgrim’s Progress

As we ended last year, we asked the participants to suggest the next course of study. Pilgrim’s Progress was mentioned, and there seemed to be a consensus on the matter. “Next to the Bible,” wrote C. H. Spurgeon, “the book that I value most is John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress …it is a book of which I never seem to tire, but then the secret of that is, that John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress is the Bible in another shape. It is the same heavenly water taken out of this same well of the gospel.” Dr J. Gresham Machen described it as “that tenderest and most theological of books …that is pulsating with life in every word.” We know that this study will challenge our hearts in the area of evangelism and spiritual growth. Do all that you can to join us for this journey.
