Book Description

27 May 2008 Hendrickson Christian Classics
Once the most deeply cherished book in English-speaking households other than the Bible itself, John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress is the allegorical tale of Christian the pilgrim on his journey to the Celestial City. Along the way, Christian encounters both worthy companions and dreadful adversaries. Although The Pilgrim's Progress was written more than three hundred years ago, this stirring spiritual narrative still bears the power to challenge and encourage readers on their own spiritual journeys. Hendrickson Christian Classics is planned to include all the timeless books that generations of believers have treasured. Each volume in the series is freshly retypeset, while thoughtful new prefaces explore their spiritual and historical contexts. For contemporary readers, here is an essential library of Christian wisdom through the ages.

Product Description


"This stunningly executed allegory has furnished the Christian imagination with names and situations that have now infiltrated most of our literature. Not often does something so popular manage also to be accurate."--Eugene Peterson, Take and Read

5.0 out of 5 stars Vivid re-telling of the timeless classic 12 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This re-telling of Bunyan's classic makes this amazing story much more accessible. Gone is the old fashioned and hard to understand english and in its place is beautifully written yet readable prose. The story has lost none of its imagery or impact but gained much through being a much easier read. The scriptural references are there (as in the original) along with helpful suggestions on how to re-read the book. Christian's epic journey along the 'narrow path' is as riveting as before and all the lessons he learns along the way as clear as day. This is an excellent book for anyone setting out on the Christian journey and equally useful for more mature Christians who may need reminding about all the pitfalls that await unwary travellers ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book that has stood the test of time 29 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I know this book and have just started reading it for the umpteenth time. All life's characters are here. Mr Worldly Wise-man and his cohorts are all alive and well in 2013. The language is old but beautiful to read, the story still packs a punch, so it will cause you to think and maybe change your life as it did mine many years ago.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Heavy.... 29 Nov 2013
By Mrs B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was 'forced' to read at my school this great Book but being in a religion at the time that seem to defy other Religions ( you know the one...(The one that wears a Uniform) SO, i got confused. This book was way ahead of its the time. I realize NOW as an Adult that this was a book about 'Spiritual Journeys' not based on 'stodgy 'religion ( Cos that's how I saw it as a child) and Pilgrim certainly had that in this wise old tale THIS time around that I DID understand it THIS time and I enjoyed it but it still had that heaviness about it but I will read it through again on my Kindle and digest it better the NEXT time I read it . For the Purists among you this will be seen as a book in the same league as the Bible as it is about lessons and Parables I guess and if you love Spiritual Philosophy in a religious type of way. I from my personal opinion am giving it 3 but I suggest YOU read it if you haven't read it as a child like me and you WILL get something from it OK. Recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pilgrim's compendium 25 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I downloaded this book I thought I was just getting the Pilgrim's Progress but in fact I got two more books. The story of Christina, Christians wife was new to me. Written as it is in old English it was not an easy read but nevertheless was worthwhile. At the end of the book was a delightful story of a child pilgrim written in poem format which I read with my 13 yr old daughter Heather. We enjoyed it and it did a lot to explain the Pilgrim's Progress which she had done at Church.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Long Journey To Glory 24 Sep 2012
By Bunny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a classic from way back when. An excellently written account of one person's journey from "this world to that which is to come". Although basically is it about Christian and his journey it is the other characters that he meets along the way that adds "spice" to the narrative. A very god read. One small critism from me is that in the version I have the Bible references are given in the narrative, (but not always the Bible quotation), and I feel it would have helped the flow of the story to have listed the references as a footnote. This of course is my personal opinion and other readers may be quite happy with this. However do not let this spoil your reading of this great Christian classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind blowing! 26 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've heard of this book and it's one of those stories I've been meaning to read for some time. When I got my Kindle, I decided to go ahead and read it. I absolutely loved this book. It's so profound and thought provoking that I read the book and immediately wanted to read it again. It really stayed with me and really made me think. I would recommend this to anyone exploring Christianity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 17 April 2012
By Leah
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Especially for those with a biblically background who catch and believe the references throughout. Romans 8:16-18 'The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book 23 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Pilgrims Progress is a spiritual classic, but it is also a classic of literature. The scholarrly introduction gives a very clear understanding of the book and its background, and of Bunyan himself. Even for anyone with no interest in things Christian, it would be a rattling good yarn, vividly written so that when Christian and Hopeful are imprisoned in Doubting Castle by Giant Dispair the reader himself begins to feel dispair, and the battle with Appolyion is truly terrifying. The characters, despite their obviously didactic names, (for this is an allegory) are credible as human beings. Even the landscape is lovely, and for those who are interested, the Delectable Mountains are the Chilterns.
