Pilgrim’s Progress: A Spiritual Classic for the Entire Family
The Pilgrim’s Progress, a Christian allegory, was written by John Bunyan and first published in February 1678. Then in 1684, Christiana, the second part of The Pilgrim’s Progress was published. To this day, it is considered one of the most significant religious English literature pieces ever written. It has gone through numerous editions, been translated into over 100 languages around the world, and has changed the lives of nearly all who have read it. Some say that The Pilgrim’s Progress is immortal. And now with the addition of The New Amplified Pilgrim’s Progress, written in modern English, the story is more accessible than ever before.
Strictly faithful to original storyline, the new amplified version provides a powerful way for parents and children of all ages to connect with this timeless masterpiece. The new amplified Pilgrim’s Progress is dramatized, abridged and contains more adventure and dialogue. Packed with practical spiritual insights and true-to-life situations and solutions, The Pilgrim’s Progress provides an opportunity for parents to develop a spiritual dialog and share the Christian faith with their children.
