You've heard of "The Pilgrim's Progress"--now read it in a lightly updated, abridged form. It's a story you won't want to miss Written in the 1600s, this timeless allegory still speaks to readers, realistically describing the joys and trials of anticipating heaven while living the Christian life on this earth. Bunyan's immortal characters--Christian, Obstinate, Pliable, and Mr. Worldly Wiseman, among others--are placed in compelling settings such as the City of Destruction, the Celestial City, and the Wicket Gate. This edition contains approximately 60 percent of the content of Part I of Bunyan's original book.
