This is a shortened verstion of a Christian classic. It is a beautiful allegory of one man's journey through the world as a Christian. It is thought provoking and challenging. A mixture of exciting adventures and spiritual converstations caputre the attention and imagination as one walkes through blessings and trials with the main character.
I enjoyed reading it. It a must for any Christian. It an allegory of the trial that christians must face on daily on there walk with Jesus. One word of caution if you don't read KJ Bible or a lot Shakespeare this could be difficult read because of the antiquated language.
I am currently reading this book as a read aloud to my 5, 7, and 9 year old little girls. While we are only taking a few pages at a time, we are all crazy about this book. A classic, one that will be read over and over, I am sure!
I cannot recommend this version of The Pilgrim's Progress highly enough. Hazelbaker did a remarkable job of translating the original English into a modern version that was very easy to understand without losing the integrity of the original work.
This book begins with an introduction written in Bynyan's original verse, and it really is like reading another language. Without this modern English translation, this beautiful story would have been an incredibly tedious read and I would have missed out on so many of the wonderful descriptions and concepts. Instead, this book was simple enough that I could read it to my small children and know that they would be able to enjoy it as well.
The Pilgrim's Progress is a beautiful Christian allegory, and this version makes it easily accessible to all.
Other than the Bible, this book is an outstanding piece of work. It is written allegorically with the character named Christian and his journey through different towns looking for the Celestial City and meeting lots of interesting characters. A masterpiece!
