On this day (February 18th) in 1678 Pilgrim's Progress was first published in England. If you have never read this great book, or listened to John Piper's biographical sketch of author John Bunyan's life, then I would highly commend them to you.

I, too, would highly recommend your reading of Pilgrim's Progress. It is a Christian classic that will amaze, teach, and move you. GREAT STORY. One of my all time favorite books.
