Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


In this companion to his great allegory, The Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan gives his readers a dialogue between two characters, Mr. Wiseman and Mr. Attentive, who discuss the life of a new deceased "Mr. Badman." This powerful dialogue revolves around sin and redemption, waking readers up to the actions and consequences of the unrepentant sinner. For those who loved The Pilgrim's Progress, Bunyan's The Life and Death of Mr. Badman will provide a fresh and compelling look at the nature of sin.
