Welcome to yet another new addition to the blog (yesterday I introduced the first of the Friday Night Lectures), Saturday Night at the Movies, where each week, a Christian or Family Friendly film, or, a Christian music concert or event will be shown. I hope you will enjoy and look forward to these. Tonight's film is:
John Bunyon's,The Pilgrim's Progress
The Pilgrim's Progress is an allegory of a Christian's journey (here represented by a character called 'Christian') from the "City of Destruction" to the "Celestial City". Along the way he visits such locations as the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair, the Doubting Castle, and the Valley of the Shadow of Death. Bunyan, the author, had very little formal education and a humble background. Nonetheless Pilgrim's Progress is considered one of the masterpieces of English literature, and is required reading for Christians who are on the spiritual path in a world of temptations.
