In this website, I am interpreting the Pilgrims Progress considered as next important to the Bible from a prophetic point of view applying it to the Christians of today.

During the days of my meditation on the Pilgrim's Progress, I have had a strange dream in which I saw a young boy holding an umbrella over the head of an old-man during the outpouring of the "latter" rains (Joel 2:23) on their journey to the destination. The young man is one who is of the 21st century; the old man was of the 17th century. Both of them walk together during the dispensation of the latter rain. I do not overtake John Bunyan but simply walk with him holding the umbrella of honour for him.

The life of John Bunyan can be read here.
