“A volume of which I never seem to tire” by Charles H. Spurgeon

“Next to the Bible, the book that I value most is John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress. I believe I have read it through at least a hundred times. It is a volume of which I never seem to tire. And the secret of its freshness is that it is so largely compiled from the Scriptures. It is really Biblical teaching put into the form of a simple yet very striking allegory.”

–Charles H. Spurgeon, Pictures From Pilgrim’s Progress (Pasadena, TX: Pilgrim, 1992), 11.
