Vivid re-telling of the timeless classic,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Pilgrim's Progress (Christian classics) (Paperback)
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 ...

I must protest at the reference to 'old fashioned and hard to understand English'. The original is, in fact, a masterpiece -- perhaps the great masterpiece -- of clear, simple English, superior even to the King James Bible. It contains very few idioms that have since dropped from the language. I give the original to those of my students who have difficulty writing clear, correct English, as a timeless model to follow.
