The England of the seventeenth century, with its political and religious turmoil, was really not so different from the America of the twenty-first. Since the fall in the Garden of Eden, there has always been God's way and man's. Hence the timelessness of John Bunyan's allegorical masterpiece, The Pilgrim's Progress, which first appeared in 1678.

Produktbeschreibung
The England of the seventeenth century, with its political and religious turmoil, was really not so different from the America of the twenty-first. Since the fall in the Garden of Eden, there has always been God's way and man's. Hence the timelessness of John Bunyan's allegorical masterpiece, The Pilgrim's Progress, which first appeared in 1678. Forged from the Wilderness is the story behind the book, the story of John Bunyan's life and of a little-known woman named Elizabeth, whom God much used to help shape him into the man he was called to be. By earthly standards, theirs was an unlikely union. Yet she became the dedicated stepmother of his four children, a courageous champion for her husband's freedom from prison, and a catalyst for the publishing of his works. Through meticulous research, I have endeavored to capture the real John Bunyan, the real Elizabeth, the real hardships they faced, and the real England of their time. How they lived in their world has much to tell us about how we ought to live in ours.

Autorenporträt
When Bob Ward first believed in Christ on October 2, 1966, it was like "someone turned on the lights in a darkened room." The lifestyle he had formerly embraced he suddenly hated. After serving in the United States Air Force from 1969 to 1972 in Germany, he remained for another year in ministry. He then returned home and earned a Bachelor of Science in Christian Education from San Diego Christian College. A twenty-seven-year career with the United Parcel Service followed. Now retired, Bob lives in Escondido, California, with his wife Gisela. He loves to spend time with his five children and twelve grandchildren. He has twelve published drama titles to his credit. His other books include Delivered out of the Lion's Mouth, and a soon-to-be-released historical novels called Between Two Seas.
