The Pilgrim's Progress (paperback)
Two Books in One
"My name is now Christian, but my name used to be Graceless." So says the character whom millions have come to know as one of the great representations of a follower of Christ. Christians around the world have been moved by the relatable struggles of this pilgrim on his way to the heavenly city. With the allegory The Pilgrim's Progress, John Bunyan established himself as a giant of Christian literature.
After hearing of Christ's sacrifice on the cross from a person named Evangelist, the newly-named Christian desperately leaves the City of Destruction to seek God's righteousness. Unfortunately, the path of this believer, as with so many others, is riddled with difficulty. He struggles through the Swamp of Despond, stands trial in the middle of Vanity Fair, and finally labours up Mount Zion to rest in heaven. But in the midst of these troubles, the Lord sends help, hope, and ultimately joy to Christian, His faithful servant. Through the pilgrim's struggles, we see God's faithfulness-and find the encouragement to seek His presence in our own lives.
This special edition of The Pilgrim's Progress features Bunyan's classic story in updated language, plus a 40-day devotional by bestselling author and former Christianity Today CEO Harold Myra. You'll find new biblical insights into this time-honoured story of the Christian faith, and learn the immense delight that comes from living faithfully with the Lord.
