For more than three centuries both Christians and non-Christians, young and old, have been fascinated by the characters and story of John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress: From This World to That Which Is to Come-regarded as one of the most significant works of English literature. While keeping the dignity and beauty of Bunyan's language, editor C. J. Lovik has updated words and phrases for today's readers.
This deluxe edition of Pilgrim's Progress, brought to life in forty all-new, full-page, color illustrations by award-winning illustrator Mike Wimmer, takes readers on a visually stunning journey with protagonist Christian as he seeks the Celestial City. Along the way, readers encounter Evangelist, Mr. Worldly Wisdom, the Interpreter, Hypocrisy, Watchful, Faithful, Talkative, Hopeful, Ignorance, and others. Through word and picture, readers will better understand the obstacles and encouragements they will face as they live out the Christian life this side of heaven.
JOHN BUNYAN (16281688) was a Reformed Baptist preacher in the Church of England. He is most famous for his celebrated Pilgrim's Progress, which he penned in prison. Although this classic allegory dominates his legacy, Bunyan was author of nearly sixty other books and tracts, including The Holy War and Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners.
C. J. Lovik graduated from Westmont College California with a degree in Education and Communication and taught elementary school in Southern California. After teaching for many years, he started a manufacturing business and developed an online family-friendly Internet search engine. The Pilgrim's Progress: From This World to That Which Is to Come is Lovik's first book.
Mike Wimmer has illustrated many children's books, including most recently Robert Burliegh's One Giant Leap and Stealing Home. His books have received the Spur Award (2003), the NCSS/CBC Notable Children's Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies (1990), and the Redbook Best Book (1990).
Steelfaith5 Stars Out Of 5BreathtakingJuly 6, 2017SteelfaithQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5It was the first time for me, as a new Christian, reading the Pilgrims Progress and I am so glad I bought this book. It was absolutely fantastic. The painted illustrations were absolutely amazing and it doesn't surprise me that this book has been a classic for almost 4 centuries now. I'm just sorry I waited so long before finally buying it. I read through the whole thing in my less than 48 hours and will definitely be reading it again and again until the Lord finally calls me home to Heaven. If I could give this 10 stars, it would get it. Worth every penny and with Chrisitanbooks already unbeatable prices and discounts, it is an incredible value.

RobertNanaimo, BCAge: 18-24Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5AwesomeMarch 30, 2013RobertNanaimo, BCAge: 18-24Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Illustrations really enhance the reading experience; the language is slightly abridged, so it's easy to read, but it doesn't take away from the original doctrinal statements and intent of Bunyan. The print is large, the quality is good; I only wish they had included "Part 2."
I love the scripture reference footnotes are awesome, helpful, and show you the depth of integrity and accuracy in Bunyan's writing.
