If you’re looking for something to read during the holidays why not read the second most best-selling religious book next to the Bible?

John Bunyan wrote his Pilgrim’s Progress in the late 17th century while locked away in a British prison cell for “crimes” of holding public religious services.

Bunyan, a Puritan preacher, wrote this timeless allegory of the Christian life, as the protagonist, “Christian,” lays his burden down and makes his perilous journey the to Celestial City.
