He spent twelve years in prison for leading religious gatherings other than at the established Anglican parish church.

Pilgrim's Progress is a classic that is just as powerful today as it was when it was first written in 1678. If you are like me though, you have struggled with the reading of this beloved book. The way we speak now has changed a lot through the years and sometimes picking up a book from a different time period can be challenging to read. I am excited to tell you about the new publication of Pilgrim's Progress.

Pilgrim's Progress book. The Pilgrim's Progress is a wonderful allegory of the beginning, progression, and conclusion of the true Christian life

Pilgrim's Progress book. Christian: Who could have thought that this path should have led us out of the way? Hopeful: I was afraid on it at the very first, and therefore gave you that gentle caution. The Pilgrim's Progress is a wonderful allegory of the beginning, progression, and conclusion of the true Christian life.

The Pilgrim's Progress from This World, to That Which Is to Come is a 1678 Christian allegory written by John Bunyan. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of religious, theological fiction in English literature. It has also been cited as the first novel written in English.

The Pilgrim's Progress. As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a Den, and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and, as I slept, I dreamed a dream

The Pilgrim's Progress. As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a Den, and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and, as I slept, I dreamed a dream. I dreamed, and behold, I saw a man clothed with rags, standing in a certain place, with his face from his own house, a book in his hand, and a great burden upon his back. I looked, and saw him open the book, and read therein; and, as he read, he wept, and trembled; and, not being able longer to contain, he brake out with a lamentable cry, saying, "What shall I do?"

I love this book, it is a classic and well worth the read whether you consider yourself a "christian" or not, so when I saw this version for 99¢, including the audio narration, I was thrilled and purchased it right away. Then I started to read it, in the prologue there is a note from some priest who has taken it upon himself to pare down the book by removing all of the "sermons" that he believes slow the story down. While that is fine for some people who may prefer this pared down version, it should be advertised up front as "abridged", which it is not. Had I known I was getting a much less meaningful version of the book, I would never have purchased it, which is why I rated it as 1 star.

I am excited to tell you about the new publication of Pilgrim's Progress. It is updated, in Modern English, but still has the original illustrations. This made such a huge difference for me. What an enjoyable read it was! I did find myself, especially at the beginning, comparing it to the original text. I wanted to see for myself how much it was changed and amazingly, very little. It's tweaked just enough to make it easy to read for today's readers.

Another very unique feature about this new publication is the Bible verses that are added to the text. I'm not talking about just a Bible reference either. Entire verses including where they are found in the Bible are throughout the whole book. For example:

In my dream, I saw a man clothed with rags standing in a certain place, with his face turned from his own house. In his hand he held a book, and he bore a great burden upon his back. (For my iniquities are gone over my head; as a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. -Psalm 38:4)

This was such an amazing aspect for me. It enriched the reading in such a spiritual way. I applaud whoever came up with the idea to do this. I'm sure it took a lot of work and study, but it was well worth it.

Pilgrim's Progress is not a quick read. It is something to be savored. To be meditated upon. I found myself reading some of the lines/paragraphs more than once. Then I would sit and close my eyes and think on it. If you allow it, it can speak volumes to your heart. What an encouragement for the Child of God! I would highly recommend reading this account of Pilgrim's Progress and feel your life will be enriched deeply in doing so.

This is one of the better versions of the Pilgrim's Progress. The version is written in clear modern language. The Bible Verses are conveniently located so one can easily read and compare them to the way John Bunyan uses them in the story. (The Bible verses are actually written out not just marked) I have several versions of the Pilgrim's Progress, so I have read this story over and over many times. I would highly recommend this version and the one written by Barry Horner. Both of the books have their advantages. If you have read this story before and you really didn't get anything out of it, I would suggest you buying this version and trying it again. I have gained different insights with each and every reading.

"The Pilgrim's Progress" was my favorite book growing up. My grandmother used to read to me from it every night. I recently got the urge to reread John Bunyan's classic, but couldn't find it in the books my dad sent me months earlier, so I naturally turned to Amazon. My dad sent me an Amazon link to the exact version I had as a youngster, but I learned that there was also a second book to this classic, and I wanted more than just the picture version of the book, so I settled on this version. I'm glad I did; I'm very happy with this purchase. It's hard cover and the design on the front is pretty cool. I can follow and understand the antiquated English, for the most part, and if there's a word that stumps me, I just look it up in the free online dictionary/thesaurus. So far, I'm really getting into the story. I started reading the book the day it arrived and had a hard time putting it down. It's nice that there's a list of the scriptures in the back that are cited in the book and reprints of all the original pictures scattered throughout the book. Although I found a few typos, I still highly recommend this book.
