~ John Bunyan's classic work, The Pilgrim's Progress is so much more than a simple historical novel. Bunyan's plan for his readers is for them to travel through this book as an adventure through the Christian life--retold on paper and picture. The story of Christian and his companions has been a favorite for generations. John Bunyan's imaginative text brings out the same, practical, necessary lessons that everyone needs to know--both today and yesterday.
Additional features and study sections have been included to help today's generation understand the book. These will help you to get behind some of the characters and places the Bunyan describes. You will also learn about Bunyan himself through a "life summary" and get some ideas on how to use this book. A small number of archaic words have been change to modern equivalents and there is a dictionary and footnotes to provide additional help. Illustrated by some of the best lithographic artists from the 19th century, this is a lovingly produced classic version of The Pilgrims Progress. Recommended for ages 7 to 11 (read to) or 12 and up (read alone).
