The Pilgrim’s Readership
Michael St. Mark 2017

 

The 17th C. Bunhill Fields tomb of John Bunyon, author of the world-renowned tome The Pilgrim’s Progress
A rare man of principle, who spent 12 years in prison after refusing to give up his nonconformist preaching.
In these corporate-dominated days of a cowed, fearful and play safe populace, non conformists get ignored and excluded – or if they manage through great effort to poke their heads above the parapet; pilloried in the mainstream media.
