About The Author:

The original author, John Bunyan was an English writer and Puritan preacher best remembered as the author of the Christian allegory The Pilgrim’s Progress. In addition to The Pilgrim’s Progress, Bunyan wrote nearly sixty titles, many of them expanded sermons.

A Few Reviews:

A beautifully produced, large-format version of Bunyan’s classic. Although all aspects of the book are skillfully handled, the illustrations are the real key to its effectiveness. Intricately detailed and constructed in a fluid, energetic, well-balanced style, they sweep across the pages dramatically. Rhythmic and stately, the prose is appropriate to the original without being obscure, and it reads aloud well. This religious allegory makes a rousing adventure story, an interesting historical commentary and an amusing satire on church and society. –School Library Journal

A must have for Christian families. I read this to my kids many times when they were young. They still talk about it from time to time even though they are grown. I’m a grandma now, and my daughter requested this as a Christmas gift for her daughter, my granddaughter. I bought it for her, so the family tradition continues to the third generation. Makes me very happy. I hope it continues for more generations. – J. Anne

“What a great children’s version of a great classic! I was highly pleased with it. We decided to use this for a homeschool co-op class and the children, ages k-5, really enjoyed it. And, even though it’s some pretty heavy material to cover, I think they got something from it. This book served as a wonderful springboard for discussing Bible truths. As they continue to grow, you can always refer back to it, because it’s good enough for both kids and adults.” – Amazon Customer
