About the Book

In his classic novel, The Pilgrim’s Progress, John Bunyan wrote allegory of the progress of the Christian Pilgrimage from the City of Destruction (this world) to the Celestial City (the world to come). Written in 1678 and now translated into over 200 languages, its message is still significant and relevant for Christians today. As an allegory, it pictures the struggles and challenges that confront Christians at all times. This book, relates the true story of a Christian journey that started over fifty years ago in Africa but extended to Europe (England) and America. It is interspersed with personal stories, encounters and reminiscences that point to the struggles, hurdles and hindrances faced by Christians today in their journey anywhere in the world. It suggests spiritual vitamins essential for spiritual stamina in the Christian journey in spiritual formation. The book evaluates the vital characteristics of spiritual formation and suggests from a biblical and theological perspective the disciplines necessary for its development. It affirms its validity with reference to the way in which class meetings played a major role in the Wesleyan tradition of spiritual formation. It recommends that exploring modern forms of class meetings would address current church decline.
