Synopses & Reviews
This volume offers a superb retelling in contemporary language of John Bunyan's beloved classic, masterfully illustrated with fifty watercolor paintings by Barry Moser.
Here again is the tale of Christian's spiritual journey from the City of Destruction to the Heavenly Palaces, including the pitfalls and graces that threaten and fortify his epic pilgrimage. Matching Bunyan's flare for storytelling and vivid imagery, Gary Schmidt's new narrative also echoes the best of writers like Dante, Sir Thomas Browne, E.M. Forster, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.
Even after three centuries, this odyssey of faith and human perseverance continues to engage readers today and now, more than ever, Schmidt's retelling of Pilgrim's Progress will delight and stir the imagination of readers over and over again.
The pilgrim Christian undertakes the dangerous journey to the Celestial City, experiencing physical and spiritual obstacles along the way.
