I like it, and my students like it. The notes will tell them what they need to know. --Gail McGrew Eifrig, Valparaiso University --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
"Next to the Bible, the book that I value most is John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" ... it is ... the Bible in another shape." (C. H. Spurgeon ~ Famous 19th century preacher)

Top customer reviews
In the chapters, biblical references are numbered and quoted at the end of each chapter. it is really lovely to be able to read this with your bible (usually when I read the quote in the bible, I would read further on too!) It is a truly uplifting presentation of Bunyan's tale of a Christian's journey.
It's also good that both part of the journey are there, 1. Christian's terrifying and comforting journey; the second part is devoted to Christian's wife and children's journey and is just not a repeat of Christian's story. Christiana's add different aspects of a Christian's characteristics from a woman's point of view. There is a little discussion about women in the bible which is quite validatory to women. Bunyan shows that there were many women who were followers and supporters of Christ. They provided food and lodging for the Lord. I like this added touch.
I read this when I woke up during the night and couldn't sleep. I found it therapeutic, and referred often to the bible to follow the texts fo the quotations. A good experience!
I am enjoying The Pilgrim's Progress and can't wait to catch up over the weekend. This book came with the free downloadable audio book which I may as well listen to once I have finished this marvellous book.
I would recommend it, it was worth the wait.
