I have always wanted to read this story. now that i am older and retired i decided to try and read the 100 greatest classics ever written and found pilgrim's progress on the list. i don't know if i will ever complete this 'greatest list', but i certainly want to re-read this classic one more time... it's that good !!!

Inspiring

This is a great classic and a must have for any christian striving to follow jesus christ and his word. although the old english is hard to get through at times, it is well worth the effort for the depth of wisdom contained within the pages. it is a great ecouragement and a sober warning of the trials and tribulations we expect to face on the narrow path we're called to walk.

Great christian book

The book is told from the third person perspective in the context of a dream. the book is divided into two parts. in the first part, the narrator follows a character named christian from the time he leaves the city of destruction and his family, accepting the path chirst lays out for him, and watches christian progress through his earthly journey until he reaches heaven. many of the elements encountered in the christian faith are personified as characters that christian encounters. the second half of the book tells the account of christian's wife's and children's journey toward heaven. the margins of the book are filled with scripture references that go along with the story. a good background in protestant theology makes the book much more enjoyable. i found the pilgram's progress to be very insightful.
