Just as Bunyan and Bedford go together, so do George MacDonald and The Pilgrim's Progress to those who are interested in the life of George MacDonald.
This lifelong connection began in MacDonald's childhood when he read and enjoyed The Pilgrim's Progress and continued through to his identification in later life with the character of 'Greatheart' by his friends.
