Ken Knabb | Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" Reading Group

Join Ken Knabb and fellow discussants for their look at the last section of the second part of John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress.

Follow the final travails and ultimate passage of Christiana through the Gate to glory, as witnessed by Mr. Despondency and Miss Much-Afraid, bewailed by her children, and celebrated by Mr. Great-heart and Mr. Valiant.

A Christian allegory, yes, penned by a Protestant dissenter, yet revelatory of the times and social forces that Bunyan faced while making his way in the world, while opposed to the World.
