Often disguised as something that would help him, evil accompanies Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. As you walk with him, you'll begin to identify today's many religious pitfalls. These are presented by men such as Pliable, who turns back at the Slough of Despond; and Ignorance, who believes he's a true follower of Christ when he's really only trusting in himself.
Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you.
The best part of this book is the Bible verses added to the text. The original Pilgrim's Progress listed the Bible verse references, but the verses themselves are so impactful when tied to the scenes in this allegory, that they are now included within the text of this book.
The text is tweaked just enough to make it readable today, for the young and the old.
Bonus - Includes Part II.

This is an astounding allegory for the Christian walk! It’s been so encouraging for my own and I’m inspired to now write music off of it and share encouragements from it for my entire life. I love this guys reading of it too, he does all the voices really well. What an intrigue!!
