The Travels of True Godliness from the beginning of the world to this present day: in an apt and pleasant allegory.
“The name of Benjamin Keach is hardly a household name among Baptists, or even among Reformed (or Particular/Calvinistic) Baptists. Yet he deserves to be well-known. He was a second generation Particular Baptist, who was the pastor of a large congregation in Southwark, London from the late 1660s until his death in 1704. In successive years that church enjoyed the ministries of John Gill, John Rippon, and Charles Haddon Spurgeon.”
“Those who adopt as one of their modes of benevolence, the distribution of awakening tracts, will find this happily suited to their purpose, and adapted to a great variety of characters. To Christians it will prove an excellent closet companion, containing judicious and satisfactory helps to self-examination, and designating the true and false marks of grace with remarkable precision. May the divine blessing attend it.”
“While The Pilgrim’s Progress is the most famous of the Christian journey allegories of the seventeenth century, it is not the only one. Though nearly forgotten today, Benjamin Keach’s ‘The Travels of True Godliness’ was in the eighteenth century nearly as popular as Bunyan’s great work. It is a great blessing to see it back in print. We hope that many will read, enjoy and benefit from it.”
James M. Renihan
“After defining godliness and showing its worthy pedigree and antiquity, ‘the excellent Benjamin Keach’ (as he was fondly called), allegorically personifies ‘Godliness,’ much as Bunyan did ‘Christian.’ He introduces us to more than two dozen enemies of godliness, then details Godliness’s encounters with several of them, including apostasy, hypocrisy, legalism, antinomianism, worldliness, and Satan. We meet in graphic detail the temptations of youth and old age, of riches and poverty, as well as the joys of contentment, thoughtfulness, kindness, and love. This is a fascinating read by the most important Baptist thinker of his day, designed to stir us up to a greater pursuit of godliness.”
