The Pilgrim’s Progress
by John Bunyan
Edited by C. J. Lovik
Illustrated by Mike Wimmer
Written in the highly imaginative allegory, The Pilgrim’s Progress tells the unforgettable story of Christian and the extreme, soul-threatening dangers he encounters on his journey to the Celestial City. But it is also much more than an allegory; in a sense it is both the personal story of anyone who undertakes the same eternal pilgrimage. The result is a masterpiece of literature as well as spiritual truth—a book that at one time was loved and read in nearly every home in England and North America—a book that has endured as a classic for more than three centuries.
This classic has refreshed my spirit time and again when my soul has longed for Christ-centered guidance and diversions. I’m so grateful this special edition of The Pilgrim’s Progress is now available to not only a new generation of Christians but to believers like myself who need direction and refreshment along our journey toward Home.
