Description

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.

    Such great wisdom and truth to be gleaned from the scriptural allegory found within. A blessing to followers of Jesus.

    This book helped me to visualize things that I have seen, and been through. It helped me to make sense of things that I have had trouble with in regards to my own walk, and recognize some things about myself in some of the characters.

    Troubling journey told of a man that leaves his family to go to heaven as if it is a place. Then in part II the family decides to also journey in the same path. Both living off the kindness of others. Their story told with quotes from the Bible.

    While he was in jail, he dreamed of this whole story, which showed the wild imagination he had. It’s kinda why I love cartoons, they have so much wild imaginations, and I have one too.

    Absolutely wonderful. This book tells of the journey of a Christian from their first steps to their last. As a Christian, this book is incredibly accurate and serves as an encouragement to me. If you’ve been looking for something to cheer you up, to push you onward, or if you seek to find a story that shares a mutual experience, this is the one. I love this book.

    Bunyan's book is excellent and still relevant today, and this retelling makes the original all the more accessible. The embedded scriptural references make the book an excellent study tool. I highly recommend to any Christian or to anyone curious about Christianity.
