'The ultimate English classic ... The story of a man in search of truth' Observer

In John Bunyan's timeless allegory, Christian sets off on a journey to find salvation. His path is not easy, and he is beset by trials, including the destructive Apollyon and the Giant Despair, as he pursues his pilgrimage through the Slough of Despond, the Delectable Mountains and Vanity Fair towards the Celestial City. In the second part of the narrative his wife, Christiana, is escorted by Great-Heart through the same difficult terrain. Written with the urgency of persecuted faith and a fiery imagination while its author was in prison, The Pilgrim's Progress is a spiritual as well as a literary classic.

This is one of the best literary stories of all time! John Bunyan did an excellent job using the literary technique of allegory. This book has spiritual insights to help encourage and teach the reader. The plot is very engaging and the reader will enjoy the characters, especially Christian. This is a must read!

I've always found this story inspiring. The English takes some getting use to at first but if you work through the first few sections you'll start picking up on the rhythm of the words.
