Publisher's Summary

Next to The Bible, The Pilgrim's Progress has probably been more widely read than any other book in the English language, and rightfully so. It is considered by most critics as the greatest allegory in any language. And to think that it was written by a jailed tinker who received very little formal education. This is the enthralling account of a Christian's epic journey. With a burden on his back, Christian reads a book that tells him that the city in which he and his family dwell will be set ablaze. Christian flees from the City of Destruction and journeys through the Slough of Despond, the Interpreter's House, the House Beautiful, the Valley of Humiliation, the Valley of the Shadow of Death, Vanity Fair, Doubting Castle, and the Delectable Mountains, and finally reaches the Celestial City.

Vibrant classic

Those who have never essayed this puritan classic will be delighted by the humour and vigour of the discourse and incident in Christian's way (part one.) Who'd-a-thunk-it? The wit that emerges from the vocalisations is a delight. Love the regional accents applied by the admirable Mr Whitfield and the earthy humanity of Bunyan himself.
Part two - Mrs Christian and family - is a little less rumbustious. By now, the metaphor has been fully developed and the tone becomes more preachy. Some of the potential sexism of the first book is redressed.
Overall, Christians in particular will find much that challenges, refreshes and inspires in this faithful and imaginative dramatisation.
