According to some experts, "The Pilgrim's Progress" was the second-bestselling book in the world for nearly 200 years, trailing only the Bible. When John Bunyan wrote this epic allegory during his imprisonment for preaching the gospel without permission, he undoubtedly had no idea it would impact the lives of so many millions of believers.
In "Quest for Celestia," Steven James reimagines John Bunyan's epic tale of spiritual discovery, breathing new life into the Christian classic. Fans of The Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings will love this unforgettable fantasy/adventure story of a young man's search for meaning and truth in a world full of witches, dragons, giants, danger and deception.
In "Quest for Celestia" James revisits John Bunyan's tale, not through the eyes of a preacher or theologian, but through the eyes of a storyteller. Rather than offer another allegory or paraphrase, James has fleshed out the characters and the storyline that lie at the heart of the narrative and created a fresh new epic. John Bunyan's themes and images and fragments of thought have certainly found their way into this story--but so has the imagination, struggles, and discoveries of an author Publishers Weekly calls "[A] master storyteller at the peak of his game."
