Publisher's Description

National Book Award finalist and two-time Newbery Honor-winning author Gary D. Schmidt recaptures the classic tale of one man's spiritual journey in this contemporary retelling of John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress, masterfully illustrated with watercolors by artist Barry Moser.Here again is the tale of Christian's epic trek from the City of Destruction to the Heavenly Palaces - of the pitfalls that threaten to waylay him and the graces that strengthen him along the way. Matching Bunyan's flare for storytelling and vivid imagery, Gary Schmidt's new narrative also echoes the style of writers like J.R.R. Tolkien, Dante, Sir Thomas Browne, E.M. Forster, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.Even after three centuries, this odyssey of faith and human perseverance continues to inspire readers today - and now Schmidt's engaging retelling will delight and stir the imaginations of a new generation of pilgrims.

Editorial Reviews

Parents' Choice AwardRecommended winner (2008)

Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"This masterly rendition of Bunyan's 17th-century allegory issues a welcome invitation to visit this classic. A treasure sure to delight young and old."
The New York Times Book Review
"If an earthly power can restore Pilgrim's Progress to the children's library, this handsome version ought to do it."
"This beautifully designed book has large, heavy pages, each divided into two columns by a single, scarlet line. Moser's watercolor paintings, mainly portraits of the characters dressed in clothing from many eras and places, thoughtfully interpret the text. A beautiful edition, recommended for any library with an audience for the classics."
School Library Journal
"The text is beautifully illustrated with Moser's colorful, realistic watercolors. . . An interesting, accessible version of an old classic that many YAs have heard about, but not all have read."

    A 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.

    I 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.

    My 13 year old and I read this wonderful book through in one sitting. It reads easily and quickly. We followed it up with the "Pilgrim's Progress- Journey to Heaven" video which really brought the message home.
