Publisher Comments:

"Now, as they approached, Mr. Greatheart drew his sword to defend the women and children..."

Feel like the only person with struggles in the Christian life?  Wonder if anyone else has traveled the same road?  Millions of Christians have cherished John Bunyan's allegorical tale of the journey Christian and Christiana made to the Celestial City.  Written in the 1600s, this immortal classic is now available in a modern-day, understandable text.

Christian leaves his home in the City of Destruction and begins a long journey to the Celestial City.  His adventure is full of encounters with interesting people such as Faithful, Hopeful, and Ignorance.  Traveling through places such as Vanity Fair and the Valley of the Shadow of Death, he reaches his heavenly home but learns rich lessons during the journey.  The story has immediate application to everyday life.

Later on, Christian's wife, Christiana, decides to join her husband in the Celestial City.  As she travels, Christiana comes upon a different set of people--Greatheart, Mercy, Honesty, and others.  Her story illustrates how Christians follow different paths but with the same destination--eternity with Jesus.

Synopsis:

Retold by James H. Thomas, the best allegory ever written is rewritten in modern English, making it clearer and more forceful to the modern reader (more than 100,000 in print).

About the Author

JOHN BUNYAN (1628-1688) was a Puritan preacher and writer in England. Bunyan had very little schooling. He followed his father in the tinker's trade, and served in the parliamentary army from 1644 to 1647. In 1655, Bunyan became a deacon and began preaching. He experienced marked success from the start and was the pastor of the Bedford church.

Bunyan is the author of The Pilgrim's Progress which he wrote in 1676 while imprisoned for preaching without a license. His numerous other titles include Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners and Holy War.
