Often disguised as something that would help him, evil accompanies Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. As you walk with him, you’ll begin to identify today’s many religious pitfalls. These are presented by men such as Pliable, who turns back at the Slough of Despond; and Ignorance, who believes he’s a true follower of Christ when he’s really only trusting in himself. Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you.
The best part of this book is the Bible verses added to the text. The original Pilgrim’s Progress listed the Bible verse references, but the verses themselves are so impactful when tied to the scenes in this allegory, that they are now included within the text of this book. The text is tweaked just enough to make it readable today, for the young and the old. Youngsters in particular will be drawn to the original illustrations included in this wonderful classic.
About John Bunyan
John Bunyan was born November 1628, in Elstow, England. A celebrated English minister and preacher, he wrote The Pilgrim’s Progress (1678), the book that was the most characteristic expression of the Puritan religious outlook. His other works include doctrinal and controversial writings; a spiritual autobiography, Grace Abounding (1666); and the allegory The Holy War (1682).
This is the only edition I have ever seen with the Scripture references printed out in the text causing the message to resonate as never before. I understand that Pilgim’s Progress has, over time, been second in overall sales and circulation only to the Scriptures.
This message is, indeed, timeless. It is as pertinent and usefully today as it was centuries ago when it was first published.
Hats off to the editors who made this wonderful edition possible. The precise editing coupled with the Scripture texts from the renowned Jubilee Bible translation, which features the classic simple precise English of William Tyndale makes for an absolute perfect match.
Suitable for everyone in our modern world yet authoritative in its commitment to the roots of The Reformation. This classic work has impacted the lives of countless millions. The English speaking world would be different if not for this book. – Llanera O.
This book is truly amazing! I highly recommend it, especially this version, which was free on the kindle. The language was updated and easy to understand, the grammar is good, there are the Scriptures written out which follow each part of the book that has a biblical reference, and there are neat illustrations. I would definitely read this version if you are looking to read the Pilgrim’s Progress. – Ryan K.
