John Bunyan

John Bunyan (1628 - 1688) was variously tinker, Baptist lay preacher, soldier, conscience prisoner, and above all a great writer. His Pilgrim's Progress is amazing, that's maybe the right term, amazing. As for his religious convictions, though he has been described both as a Baptist and as a Puritan, he himself preferred to be described simply as a Christian.That makes me think of people of faith who try to make a step further toward what's common in all Abrahamic religions.
