The Pilgrim's Progress: From This World to That Which is to ComeISBN: 9781433562501
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.
Along the way, listeners encounter Evangelist, Mr. Worldly Wisdom, the Interpreter, Hypocrisy, Watchful, Faithful, Talkative, Hopeful, Ignorance, and others.
The purpose in publishing this edition of The Pilgrim's Progress is to carry forward this legacy for a new generation. With this as the objective, the text of this edition has 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 the following pages 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.
New art was created specifically for this edition - thirty full-colour, original paintings by the highly acclaimed artist Mike Wimmer. There is a sense in which these new paintings also carry forward the Bunyan legacy, in that many of the earliest editions of The Pilgrim's Progress also included original, engraved illustrations. As was the case more than 300 years ago, these new illustrations - beautifully rendered in exquisite detail and faithfulness to the story - will delight a new generation of children and adults and will powerfully reinforce the timeless truths of Bunyan's original story.
