While penning his famous work, The Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan was undeterred by his situation in a cold, damp jail cell huddled together with rough men and hardened criminals. Bunyan was an inspired man devoted to his calling - the result of divine intervention in his personal life: first, his conversion to Christianity and - after having been incarcerated for propagating Nonconformism in his hometown (Bedford in England) - a fantastical revelation that was given to him in a dream and served as the impulse for one of the most influential evangelical works in history.
