Pilgrim’s Progress (book review)

Pilgrim's ProgressIt’s been awhile since I have read Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan, so I thought it was high time to re-read this amazing classic.

I was not disappointed!

In fact, I think I appreciated this time reading this amazing story more than any other time I’ve read it! The pilgrimages of Christian, Faithful, and Hopeful, and that of Christiana, Mercy and Great-heart are fantastic! Very few books have portrayed the journey of a Christian from salvation until arrival in Heaven with such accuracy and emotion.

Parents, your kids will love hearing you read this classic story to them. As your children get a little older, they can read Little Pilgrim’s Progress on their own. And then encourage them to read (and re-read) the original Pilgrim’s Progress throughout their lives. This book is a true blessing!

    Charles Spurgeon was a huge fan of John Bunyan’s writing. This portion of one of Spurgeon’s sermons is loaded with references to Pilgrim’s Progress … “None so happy as tried Christians—afterwards. No calm is more deep than that which follows a storm. Who has not seen clear shinings after rain? God gives sweet banquets to his children after the battle. It is after the rod that he gives the honeycomb; after climbing the Hill Difficulty, we sit down in the arbour to rest; after passing the wilderness we come to the House Beautiful; after we have gone down the Valley of Humiliation, after we have fought with Apollyon, the shining one appears to us and gives us the branch which heals us. It is always ‘afterwards’ with the Christian. He has his best things last, and he must be expecting, therefore, to have his worst things first. It is always ‘afterwards.’ Still, when it does come, it is peace, sweet, deep peace.”
