A Dreamer And His Wonderful Dream

The Story of John Bunyan and The Pilgrim's Progress

by Alfred P. Gibbs

Author of: "The Marvelous City of Mansoul," "The Gospel Choruses for Young and Old," "Worship: The Christian's Highest Occupation," etc.

Second Edition


Gospel Folio Press


An attempt has been made in this volume to re-emphasize the sound scriptural teaching of "The Pilgrim's Progress" especially to young people, and this is the sole explanation of its existence.

Of its many imperfections none is more conscious than the author, but if it leads the reader to a more diligent study of this immortal allegory, and also of Bunyan's other works, especially "Grace Abounding" and "The Holy War," he will feel amply repaid.

The contents of this book appeared originally in a series of weekly articles in "Works of Love," a Sunday School magazine, and are now sent forth in this complete form with the earnest desire that the blessing of God may attend its reading, and that as a result, many may be led to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, and thus begin the pilgrim journey; and that those who are already treading the celestial highway, may be encouraged to go on for God and to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.

Chicago, Ill., 1930

Chicago, Ill., 1935

*** Checking the internet shows that a fourth edition of this was written in 1960. Since no new editions have been issued, it is considered as an out-of-print, public domain book.

Editor's Note: All Scripture references in this book have been edited to ensure they are from the King James Bible, and have been bolded for emphasis.
