fe and children, perceiving it, began to cry after him to return; but the man put his fingers in his ears, and ran on, crying, Life! life! eternal life! [Luke 14:26] So he looked not behind him, but fled towards the middle of the plain. [Gen. 19:17]

{19} The neighbours also came out to see him run [Jer. 20:10]; and, as he ran, some mocked, others threatened, and some cried after him to return; and, among those that did so, there were two that resolved to fetch him back by force. The name of the one was Obstinate and the name of the other Pliable. Now, by this time, the man was got a good distance from them; but, however, they were resolved to pursue him, which they did, and in a little time they overtook him. Then said the man, Neighbours, wherefore are ye come? They said, To persuade you to go back with us. But he said, That can by no means be; you dwell, said he, in the City of Destruction, the place also where I was born: I see it to be so; and, dying there, sooner or later, you will sink low

An excellent allegorical book outlining a pilgrim's pathway here on earth. A must read right after the Bible itself.

Christians generally consider the Christian pathway to be a cheery one that ushers them to heaven in the end. However, little do we realize that the earth is truly Enemy Territory and that the pathway is therefore strewn with danger. But this is nothing to fear, as our pilgrim finds out - since we have the constant ministry of Christ, our High Priest, helping us stay away from danger - and if by any misadventure, the Pilgrim is led away from following the footsteps of the master, there's His ministry as the Advocate.

Great book - again, a must read.
