The Biblical Theology of the Pilgrim’s Progress

The panel of Christ the Center recently interviewed Dr. Barry Horner with regard to the history and theology of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress. As a lover of Bunyan’s works, I have to admit that this was one of my favorite interviews. I learned quite a bit about the interpretation of Pilgrim’s Progress from Dr. Horner (Horner did a doctorate on the theology of Pilgrim’s Progress at WSCAL). You can listen to the episode here.

I would also recommend Derek Thomas’ lecture series on the Pilgrim’s Progress. You can find it here. You can listen to various lectures form that series below:
