A masterpiece of the English Puritan tradition, The Pilgrim’s Progress is rich in its imaginative power and its vivid and heartfelt language. It recounts the story of Christian, who appears to the author in a dream, and his journey to Heaven through the trials and tribulations of life. He meets many like-minded pilgrims on his way, such as Faithful and Hopeful, but before they attain their goal they encounter the Giant Despair and the River of Death itself. Translated into more than one hundred languages, The Pilgrim’s Progress continues to have an immeasurable influence on English literature.
One of the purposes of this book is to display the fact that the four Gospels agree together in all their details and reveal the guiding hand of an unseen author….. Combining the Gospels is certainly not new. Tatian’s Diatessaron in the second century being one of the first such attempts. But this combination is an attempt to interweave the four Gospels in such a way as to incorporate all the details into a single chronological story, without repeating any parts. In so doing, the Gospels hold together like the pieces of a stupendous jigsaw puzzle. The combination effect is both stereophonic and stereoscopic. — excerpts from book’s Preface
Are you ready to hope again? Are you ready to let go of doubt and sorrow? Just listen carefully. God is whispering your name.
Somewhere, between the pages of this book and the pages of your heart, God is speaking. And He is calling you by name.
Maybe that’s hard to believe. Maybe you just can’t imagine that the One who made it all thinks of you that personally — that He keeps your name on His heart and lips.
But it’s true. In the Bible and in the circumstances of your life, He whispers your name lovingly. Tenderly. Patiently but persistently. Let these stories remind you of the God who knows your name.
Some of the stories are from the Bible. Some are drawn from everyday life. Most are about people who are lost … or weary … or discouraged — just like you may be. If you let them, they will tell the story of your life. And the story of a God who speaks into your situation.
So listen closely as you turn these pages. Listen for the Father’s gentle whisper that can erase your doubt, your sorrow, your weariness, your despair.
It really is your name that you hear, and the Voice that calls is more loving that your ever dared dream. Listen. And learn to hope again.
Learn to prepare your home to be a haven where spirits are renewed, dreams are nurtured, and the best of life is lived. Nestle your family into a warm and welcoming refuge by learning how to establish and enjoy a peaceful home.

Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible?
