His Progress, Your Journey.
John Bunyan (28 November 1628 31 August 1688) was an English Christian writer and preacher, famous for writing The Pilgrim's Progress. Though he was a Reformed Baptist, in the Church of England he is remembered with a Lesser Festival on 30 August and on the liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church (US) on 29 August.

"The New Amplified Pilgrim's Progress" sheds light and clarity on the spiritual riches of the original masterpiece. James Pappas Jr. combines modern language with patterns of speech of Bunyan's classic writing.
Pappas' adaptation adds a new dimension of adventure and humor by amplifying selected passages; however he takes care to preserve the powerful impact, beauty, and message of Bunyan's unabridged storyline. Pappas uses his skills as a storyteller to introduce a new generation to the message of love, joy, and hope of Bunyan's classic masterpiece by zeroing in on the fascination with angels and supernatural beings that intrigue young fantasy readers of today.
Memorable original illustrations faithfully depict the picturesque word pictures describing the familiar Wicket Gate, the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair, the land of Beulah, and many other places Christian passes through along the way. Other illustrations picture the characters, testing, and conflict that confront him throughout his journey.
The life changing potential of "The New Amplified Pilgrim's Progress" makes this an important book for shared family reading, a must for Christian School and Church libraries, and an important classic for every home-schooler's reading list.
