An attempt has been made in the volume to reemphasize the sound Scriptural teaching of the “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 more diligent study of this immortal allegory, and also of Bunyan’s other words, 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 “Words 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 Savior and thus begin the pilgrim journey; and that those who are already treading the celestial highway, may be encouraged to go on the for God and to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever.

Alfred P. Gibbs (1890-1967) was a man born to preach. Brought up with his twin brother Edwin in South Africa, both boys early came to know, love, and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Edwin (1890-1968) stayed on in South Africa to pursue a fruitful evangelistic and Bible teaching work. Alfred studied at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and thereafter carried on an itinerant Bible teaching and writing ministry, chiefly in the United States and Canada. Gibbs published his first book, The Marvelous City of Mansoul in 1926. In all he wrote fourteen books and booklets, including Christian Baptism, The Lord’s Supper, Scriptural Principles of Gathering, and Worship. All his books have intensity like the man who wrote them. He was full of his subject. He also composed poetry and wrote Christian hymns. Gibbs never married, considering himself a eunuch for the kingdom of God. He was a model of the advice he gave, he was a spiritual man and a practical man, and fun to be with besides. For Gibbs, to hold forth the Word of life was a lifetime passion. This is evident in Gibbs’ helpful companion book, Through the Scriptures, which is a workbook of Bible outlines culled from Gibbs’ own preaching.
