I like this, but not in love. The redeeming factor in my purchase is the formating of the text (which is double column) and the fact that all his works are in one volume with all the lovely pictures. I agree that this will be read to my kids. Nut i will have to rebind this before passing it on. The quality is not as good as they advertized. The English is smoother though. The other redeeming factor is there is 1" wide ribbone in the book. Its massive. I giggled a bit when i saw it.
If you watched the movie then you will definately want this edition.
This "Collector's Edition" includes other major writings by John Bunyan, including The Holy War, which like the Pilgrim's Progress is an allegorical story, and Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, which is Bunyan's personal conversion story, plus his Last Sermon, and several other works.
As a student of Comparative Religion, The Pilgrim's Progress is one of my favorite books. I couldn't resist this edition because of the commentary and the inclusion of the other works by Bunyan.
I would invite non-Evangelical Christians and Sunni and Shia Muslims to give Pilgrim's Progress a reading, perhaps in a less expensive edition, to see how a Puritan Evangelical Christian saw the World in 17th Century Britain when Evangelicals had few freedoms and were the persecuted people.
This edition also includes other works by John Bunyan I was unaware of. It is definitely a valuable collection of his inspirational writings and stories.
But I can tell that the paper and binding are of somewhat lower quality, so it's important to handle this book carefully so as to prevent page tearing and collapsing the binding. But the quality of printing and the colored illustrations are superb.
The only thing that I dislike is the very large print, and consequently, very large size of this book. It's a tome of about the same size as Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language. I actually have to hold the book quite a distance away because of the largeness of the font! It looks about like 24 point Times New Roman! I would prefer smaller print, and a smaller book. But other than this very small criticism, I highly recommend it.
