3.0 out of 5 stars The Pilgrim's Progress
I have not finished this book yet but will continue. I find the original version and new modern English text very helpful. I bought the book because I had been lent a DVD of the Pilgrim's Progress and wanted to know how closely the DVD followed John Bunyan's writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars My second favourite book, 25 Feb. 2015

This review is from: The Pilgrim's Progress In Plain and Simple English - Part One and Two (A Modern Translation and the Original Version) (Kindle Edition)
This is an excellent book. First printed in 1678, it has been translated into over 200 languages and has never been out of print.

I first read this book as a child and loved it enough to read it several times. I rediscovered it again when I was in my forties. Now, in my sixties, I am enjoying it even more. I do prefer the original version, not only for the fact that the large amount of poetry in it rhymes and is better in metre than the modern translation.

I'm not a religous or particularly spiritual person but this is so thought provoking. Oh and by the way John Bunyan's original script is perfectly understandible and stands the test of time.

Sharing with our 8 year old son, this version has really made the original story accessible, and opened up so many ways to understand the Christian faith - Thoroughly recommended.

The Pilgrim came to life! I especially liked the modern English interspersed with the old English. What a great idea.
