This Day in History February 18, 1678

Pilgrim's ProgressThere may some discrepancies in the date, but this seems like the best date for today’s feature. On this date in 1678, John Bunyan’s best-loved work Pilgrim’s Progress, was published. I have had the privilege to read the original and another couple of versions of this book, and I highly recommend it. Once you realize that Bunyan wrote this while imprisoned.  It is considered one of the greatest work of Christian/church literature.

1 Peter 2:11 ESV

Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.
