Each character represented in this classic 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.

Includes Parts 1 & 2
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 the Author
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).
I grew up reading Pilgrim’s Progress and have always loved the story. This updated version is easier to read, but the thing I love most about it is that the bible references are not only listed, but the verses have been added to the text.
As a homeschool family, this makes a fantastic read aloud. Actually, for any family – it presents an opportunity to sit together and read out loud, and discuss not only the deeper meaning, but how we can apply the lessons in our own lives.
This is an classic adventure journey, with a much deeper meaning (see book description) that I hope everyone will read!
Why is there one for a price of 11.. and other for the price of 16?
