John Bunyan

The author of Pilgrim’s Progress


They imprisoned his body but not his faith

John Bunyan spends his days in prison, separated from his wife and children. Living in the cold, stone cell is the price he pays for going against the established state religion. If only he would agree to stop preaching, John could walk out a free man! Why does he choose to stay in jail, and how will he serve his Lord in this wretched place? Find out in this episode of The Torchlighters. Read more about John Bunyan, the poor tinker who wrote a masterpiece.

What People are Saying

“Well Worth Watching”

We watched this film as a family and enjoyed it together. It is well worth watching and discussing together.

Many of my [students], even though they’re high school age, have expressed how much the Torchlighter series has meant to them. It has motivated them to pursue the Lord more, to rest more in him, to share him more with others. How wonderful!

“Enriching Movies”

We wanted something in our home that would enrich our children’s lives and give them missionary hearts, and these movies do that perfectly. We have recommended them to all the families we know who have children.


“A Favorite”

The Torchlighter videos are my childrens’ favorites! THANK YOU for making these ministry tools! We are missionaries in South America, and we really appreciate you putting the videos in Spanish.
