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.

About the Author
John Bunyan was an English Christian writer and preacher who is best known for his allegorical novel The Pilgrim' s Progress, published in 1678. Bunyan' s faith was profoundly influenced by two books owned by his wife: Arthur Dent's Plain Man's Pathway to Heaven and Lewis Bayly's Practice of Piety, and he turned to preaching following the death of his guide and mentor, John Gifford. The restoration of the monarchy of Charles II of England marked England' s return to Anglicanism, and Bunyan' s freedom to preach was curtailed. He was arrested numerous times for preaching without a licence, and was finally imprisoned for the offence in November 1660. Bunyan was released from prison in January 1672 and resumed preaching (as permitted under the Declaration of Religious Indulgence) until his death in 1688. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I found this version very readable as an adult and not too cluttered with some of the original theological discussions which you can always read in the full free versions available for the kindle.
Surprisingly it kept my attention right to the end and some of the more profound observations ( particularly how crossing Jordan can be different for different Christians ) have stayed with me weeks after finishing the book.
I'm not sure how this book will read if you have no faith in Jesus, I guess its either ridiculous or terrifying;but I enjoyed it very much.
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.
