The Pilgrim's Progress from This World, to That Which Is to Come is a Christian allegory written by John Bunyan that was first published in 1678. It is regarded as one of the most significant religious works of fiction ever published in English literature. Presented as a dream sequence that is narrated by an omniscient narrator, the book tells of the journey of Christian, from his hometown (this world) to the celestial city (Heaven). Burdened by guilt, he makes his travels towards the light, visits such locations as the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair, the Doubting Castle, and the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and meets people along the way who either seek to help him or hinder his progress.

The book was widely popular in the Puritan colonies and was often split into smaller segments so it could be made into individual sermons. It has since been translated into over two hundred languages and has never been out of print.
