John Bunyan (28 November 1628 – 31 August 1688) was an English Christian writer and preacher, famous for writing The Pilgrim's Progress. Though he was a Reformed Baptist, in the Church of England, he is remembered with a Lesser Festival on 30 August.
John Bunyan was a toddler at the time of the Ring of Fire. His father Thomas Bunyan was summoned by Isaac Abrabanel and informed by him that Grantville had extended an invitation to the Bunyan family to relocate there. An attorney in Grantville had prepared an instrument to ensure the royalties for The Pilgrim's Progress were paid to young John Bunyan. Although John had not yet written anything, he was still undeniably the author. An old Free and Approved Mason wondered what John Bunyan's output would be when he received a first class education.
