About the Author
Horror has taken hold upon me because of the wicked that forsake thy law – Psalm 119:53
Updated, Modern English. Illustrated.
The life of Mr. Badman forms
a third part to The Pilgrim’s Progress,
but it is not a delightful pilgrimage to heaven. On the contrary, it is a
wretched downward journey to the infernal realms. The author’s goal is to warn
poor, thoughtless sinners, not with smooth words they can ignore, but with
words that thunder against their consciences regarding the danger of their
souls and the increasing wretchedness into which they are madly hurrying. The
one who is in imminent but unseen danger will bless the warning voice if it
reaches his ears, however rough and startling it may sound.
The life of Badman was
written in an age when abandonment of moral principles, vice, gluttony,
intemperance, habitual lewdness, and the excessive unlawful indulgence of lust
marched like a ravaging army through our land, headed by the king, along with
officers from his polluted peers. Is this book not also written for today,
