Pilgrim's Progress is a great work of Christian literature. Originally composed
in the 17th century, this spiritual allegory has entertained and delighted
innumerous readers for over 300 years. Part I tells of "Christian" and his
journey to "Celestial City;" Part II tells of the journey of Christian's wife
Christiana and their children to Celestial City. The two parts work together as
a unified whole, which describes and depicts the believer's life and struggles.
Indeed, given the easy style of the book, readers of all ages can understand
the spiritual significance of the depictions in the story. However, Pilgrim's
Progress does not simply instruct readers with spiritual allegories; it
entertains them as well, through Bunyan's creative story telling. Enjoyable and
spiritually instructive, Pilgrim's Progress is highly recommended.
