John Bunyan was born in 1628.  His fame emanates from the allegorical book The Pilgrim’s Progress. A classic of the English language.

A committed non-conformist Bunyan’s life covered two seminal periods in English history: The English Civil War and the Restoration of Charles II.  He fought in the former and was subject to over 12 years in prison during the latter. 

Whilst this caused great hardship, even more so one expects to his young wife and their children, his spirit and determination to remain dutifully worshipping of his faith was undoubted and resolute.

It is with particular pleasure that we bring you perhaps a side to his life that has not been fully appreciated.  His poetry.  Across their verses and number are works of quite remarkable thought.

John Bunyan died in 1688, just short of his 60th birthday and is buried in Bunhill Fields in London.
