For more than three centuries both Christians and non-Christians, young and old, have been fascinated by the characters and story of John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress: From This World to That Which Is to Come

The purpose in publishing this edition of The Pilgrim’s Progress is to carry forward this treasured legacy for a new generation. With this as the objective, the text of this edition has only been lightly edited to update archaic words and difficult sentence structure, while retaining the beauty and brilliance of the original story, and to let the story unfold with all the power, truth, and remarkable creativity of the original. It is our hope and prayer, then, that this audio will fascinate and captivate the hearts and minds of this generation today, as was the case when The Pilgrim’s Progress was first published more than three centuries ago.                                          

Listeners will have a visually stunning journey along with the audio of protagonist Christian as he seeks the celestial city. Along the way, listeners encounter Evangelist, Mr. Worldly Wisdom, the Interpreter, Hypocrisy, Watchful, Faithful, Talkative, Hopeful, Ignorance, and others.

    " If you are or thinking about even attempting to read the pilgrims progress, unabridged, then i must warn you this is a challenge book. the old wording is an encryption within itself. If you don't pay close attention and read through the lines you wont understand the meanings woven throughout this book at all. As for the quality of the story line, its fantastic, a bit dreary at first, but if you've already got a spiritual curiosity with a more than fiery passion, and love for a slight medieval theme, you will intensity enjoy this book. Speaking from my own experience of the book, yes i found it interesting and entertaining. Its a natural mind grabber and will make you not want to stop reading until you've finished it all in one sitting. of course i do not recommended this, not saying that it can't be done, but it can be unhealthily considering the age level, maturity level and intelligence level, i suspect you in fact have things to do and a life to live so please... chew with small bites. "

    " I was disappointed, considering this is a classic. It was much too literal for me. I never was invested in the characters and wasn't wanting to read more to find out what happened to them. I prefer to see religious truths played out in the form of a life story vs. a conversation btw 'Christian' and others as he walks (on his 'journey of faith'). Stories, to me, are more powerful. The life of the author is extra-ordinary and the book is saturated in scripture. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Skip | 2/9/2014

    " So, I could take the time to write a review for this and discuss some of the philosophical/religious aspects of it, but to be honest, I just don't want to. I've been working on this book since February and I'm a little tired about being told I am going to hell. The one thing I will point out: How come it seemed that Atheist was the happiest character? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 2/6/2014

    " I liked this book. I liked the imagery and the metaphors. I listened to it on audiobook and would like to someday read in print as I think in listening to it some of the best parts didn't sink in. A little hard to follow when listening, especially since the narrators voice was so soothing and often lulled me to sleep. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelli Cooper | 2/2/2014

    " I read this book a couple times for different English classes. I think it is neat, and deserves some kudos. However, I would never think to myself, "I'm in the mood to read some Pilgrim's Progress." So basically, don't read this book unless you have to write a paper on it or share a 15 minute spiritual insight with your Senior Writing Seminar class. Plegh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eleanore | 1/20/2014

    " I never got to finish this one, but I walked away with many thought provoking and faith-filled stanzas "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh Rickard | 1/19/2014

    " I very much enjoyed this book. There is all sorts of application even now for the Christian striving to live for the glory of the one who called him. I look forward to reading it again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 1/17/2014

    " While it took me awhile to get through it. But it is full of scripture and great story we can all relate to in our spiritual journey. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debby | 1/15/2014

    " I've wanted to read Pilgrim's Progress for years, but the task always seemed daunting. This "revised" version by Gary Schmidt was written for 5th through 8th graders, so I gave it a try! I'm so glad I did!!! This is a book I will definitely read over and over again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alesia | 1/4/2014

    " Such a good perspective on the spiritual journey of life. I have a children's version (A Dangerous Journey) that I read to my 3yr. old son, who's favorite chapter is "The Valley of The Shadow of Death". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jesse | 12/13/2013

    " I rather enjoyed this. It was a much simpler read than I was anticipating, and it is quite encouraging. He's got some great insights into the Christian life, and it's no wonder this is a "classic among classics" as they say. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joel Carter | 12/4/2013

    " The one and only. Tough to read, but worth the journey. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mac | 11/14/2013

    " This book is unabriged-but what makes it better than the origanal is that someone made some really cool realistic drawing.s "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gideon Ballou | 11/4/2013

    " Bunyan breathes out Biblical truths for the lost man and the growing Christian. A must read for every living man. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amelia the Strange | 10/23/2013

    " I never, ever, ever want to read this book again. It apparently really spoke to my mom because not only did she read it to us, she made us read it too many times to count. And I didn't really enjoy it the first time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carol | 6/8/2013

    " Perhaps I should not rate this. I never got too far into it as I was so quickly turned off by what to my modern ways seemed to be sleep inducing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vicki | 3/27/2013

    " I had to read this in college. Don't remember a thing about it. So, does it still count? "

    " This is my all time favorite book. It taught me that even though there can be countless struggles down the right path you can still be victorious at the end. "

    " Like Don Quixote, I've read an enjoyed Part 1. Now I have to get off my ass and read Part II. Helen thinks I'm deranged, but this book -- a Penguin Classic -- has the nicest book smell I've ever come across. "

    " Although it is a somewhat complicated book because it was written in the old English and a long time ago it contains truths of all the daily trials and tribulations a Christian faces in his/her walk towards reaching Heaven. "

    " Boy, normally I'm all over the classics. But this one just didn't do much for me. Some books are a metaphor on top of a story. This one was just the metaphor. "

    " One of my very favorite books. I discovered it when I was about 13 and reading Little Women. (I later played Jo in a high school production). I immediately went to our old creaky library and checked it out. I liked it so well that I gave a book report on it and made a map of Christian's journey. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bcoghill | 3/10/2011

    " I have started this many times since starting and not finishing it in the sixties. Thanks to Kindle - I finally completed it. I don't know why but it seemed much more doable in Kindle. I really think the type face may have had much to do with success.
    I'll never have to read it again. whew. "

About the Author
Author John Bunyan

John Bunyan (1628–1688) started out as an itinerant worker and a soldier. When he began to have religious experiences, he joined a Christian fellowship and soon began preaching. His discussions with the followers of George Fox inspired his first book, Some Gospel Truths Opened, published in 1656. In 1660, he was arrested while preaching. During twelve years of imprisonment in the county jail, he wrote several works, including Profitable Meditations, Praying in the Spirit, The Holy City, and Grace Abounding. He was released after the Declaration of Indulgence of 1672, under which he became a licensed preacher and pastor of the church to which he belonged; but in 1673 the Declaration was canceled, and Bunyan was sent back to prison for six months. During this time he wrote his most famous work, the epic Christian allegory The Pilgrim’s Progress. His defined religious outlook is balanced in his writing by an almost modern realism and psychological insight.
