John Bunyan

You’ve probably heard of John Bunyan’s “The Pilgrim’s Progress.” After all, it’s one of the most significant works of literature ever published (aside from the Bible). But did you know this classic Christian allegory that’s endured for nearly 350 years has a sequel?

On today’s episode of the Great Stories Podcast, Charles Morris is joined by Tyler Van Halteren — author of the adapted children’s books Little Pilgrim’s Big Journey Vol. I & II — as they walk in the footsteps of John Bunyan where he grew up, preached, and spent time in jail. You’ll also hear Tyler discuss “Christiana’s Story,” the little-known sequel that delves even deeper into the spiritual truths of John Bunyan’s magnum opus.
