The Pilgrim's Progress is a truly wonderful book. It is second only to the Bible in popularity in England. I believe it should be so in America, also. This rendering of the book, with it's beautiful illustrations, and fine paper is exceptional. This book merits being read and enjoyed over and over.

This was a different experience than I'd anticipated...The book is an adaptation of the original, though enjoyable, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan, December 28, 2009
Some say that John Bunyan's famous allegory about Pilgrim's journey to the Celestial City is second only to the Bible itself in the number of copies sold worldwide. First published in 1678, this 330 year old allegory written by John Bunyan while incarcerated for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ without a license is as pertinent today as it was when it was written.
This book is an essential read because of its simplicity and its depth. The Christian reader will identify quickly with the main character and many (if not all depending on the readers disciplined walk) of the people, places, and themes encountered. The reader will know that the issues he/she faces today are issues faced by all Christians as they walk through this life on their way to their eternal home.

This book is a classic. A new Christian would be well served to read this book. It will certainly challenge the modern view of the prosperity gospel. Do you love what is on the KINGS table or do you love the KING?

Since the book is in old english, it is somewhat hard to adjust to, but worth sticking to it. It is a good read for the soul and spirit. It makes it very easy to relate to circumstances that the characters are going through, because we have all been in one or more of those places.
