Regarded as one of the most significant works of English literature, John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress has encouraged, challenged, and fascinated Christians and non-Christians, young and old, for more than three centuries. Retaining the dignity and beauty of Bunyan’s original language, editor C. J. Lovik has updated key words and phrases, making the book more accessible to modern readers. Brought to life with 30 original, full-page, color illustrations by award-winning illustrator Mike Wimmer, this edition will help readers understand the joys and struggles of the life of faith on earth through the journey of Christian as he encounters Evangelist, Ignorance, Mr. Worldly Wisdom, and others on his way to the Celestial City.
If any smoothing of Bunyan’s seventeenth-century language plus new colored pictures can set The Pilgrim’s Progress aglow in the hearts of today’s young readers, this lovely book will surely do it.
—J. I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College
The longer I journey through our dear Immanuel’s land, the more grateful I am for John Bunyan’s ‘dream’ and the cruel imprisonment that occasioned it. What a gift weary travelers have been given in this precious, timeless classic-and what beauty, insight, and encouragement was borne out of his suffering! Unafraid to challenge the outward trials of moralism, materialism, and persecution, humble enough to confess his own doubts and despair, Bunyan leads us on our way to the Celestial City we long to see. And what a gift modern readers have been blessed with in C. J. Lovik’s careful editing and Mike Wimmer’s luminous illustrations! This book is beautiful! The Pilgrim’s Progress has always been a cherished treasure, but this edition makes Christian’s story—our story—sing! I’m so thankful for it!
—Elyse Fitzpatrick, author, Give Them Grace
This classic has refreshed my spirit time and again when my soul has longed for Christ-centered guidance through a maze of modern detours and diversions. I’m so grateful this special edition of The Pilgrim’s Progress is now available not only to a new generation of Christians but also to believers like myself who need direction and refreshment along our journey toward Home.
