Here again is the tale of Christian's spiritual journey from the City of Destruction to the Heavenly Palaces, including the pitfalls and graces that threaten and fortify his epic pilgrimage. Matching Bunyan's flare for storytelling and vivid imagery, Gary Schmidt's new narrative also echoes the best of writers like Dante, Sir Thomas Browne, E.M. Forster, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.
Even after three centuries, this odyssey of faith and human perseverance continues to engage readers today and now, more than ever, Schmidt's retelling of "Pilgrim's Progress" will delight and stir the imagination of readers over and over again.
Kt4 Stars Out Of 5Pilgrim's ProgressDecember 31, 2014KtQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3A wonderful book that retells the full story of Bunyan's writing. I read it aloud to my boys who were able to see the similarities and parallels with the Bible. I gave this copy to families to read to their children. I was excited to find this in a small hardback copy for them to keep on their shelves and hopefully read this over and over.

Great Family Read!January 23, 2013ShancaOhioAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I first came across this version of Pilgrim's Progress years ago when we were homeschooling our daughters. We decided to read it as a family. We instantly fell in love with the beautiful colorful pictures, but what drew us in more was the story itself. What a great rendition of exactly what the Christian life is like. This is not a "dumbed down" version of the book. It can easily be enjoyed by an adult or an older child/teenager. The parallels between the Bible and the story line could easily become a great Bible study. As a matter of fact, I'm planning on using it for just that with a group of ladies very soon. I'm so excited about it, as I've loved this book from the moment I started it, and want to share it with others. You will not be disappointed in this book, no matter what your age.
