      Pilgrim’ Progress is one of history’s greatest works of literature; not to mention arguably the greatest in Christian literature. Except for the Bible, Pilgrim’s Progress has been read by more people than any other book in the English language. However, the confusing old English has kept many people back from fully understanding or even reading John Bunyan’s classic at all. But now, Moody Press’ Pilgrims Progress in today’s English as retold by James H.

      Thomas removes the language barrier. Bunyan’s story begins simply. A young man named Christian is reading a book.

      He begins to

      weep, for the book declares the doom of the city where Christian lives. He is overcome with grief, when he learns that all who live in his hometown will be destroyed by fire. Christian begins to plead with his family.

      But they think he is losing his mind, so they ridicule him. Christian goes to his room and prays for his family to realize the danger, but to know avail. So when a man named Evangelist comes and gives Christian directions to the Celestial City, Christian leaves alone with his families mocking ringing in his ears.


      • Traveling the road to salvation, he meets many people, including Obstinate, Mr. Worldly Wiseman, Goodwill, Faithful, Ignorance and many others. Christian also encounters roadblocks and distractions that threaten his very life.

        A muddy swamp, an angry giant, and sleepiness all overcome him and prove fatal. Christian also takes some challenges in stride and conquers. Can Christian make it all the way up the long, hard road to the Celestial City? Or will he slip off the path and never find his way back?

        Later, his wife Christiana realizes her mistake and takes her four boys

        to follow their father’s footsteps.

        She meets many helpful people, and has a much easier time than Christian. Though Christian and Christiana follow different paths and collide with other challenges, they both have their eyes on the same goal- eternity with Jesus. Pilgrim’s Progress may be an old book, but the principles still apply today.

        John Bunyan’s classic will shine light on any Christian’s path, young or old. Worth reading again and again, Pilgrim’s Progress is a drama that will continue to endure and inspire millions more Christians, because of it’s timeless teaching, gripping story, and inspiring applications to daily life.
