Journey the Obstacle-filled Path with Pilgrim
There's no book in English, apart from the Bible, to equal the enormously influential 17th-century classic The Pilgrim’s Progress’ impact in literature. This gripping allegory of man's religious journey in search of salvation follows the pilgrim as he travels an obstacle-filled road to the Celestial City. Even the great preacher Charles Spurgeon said, “Next to the Bible, the book I value most is John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress.”
Themes and Struggles that Resonate
Originally printed with what we would today call archaic language, the story carried such simple charm that for many years The Pilgrim's Progress was the "other book" in the Christian home, studied and taught only second to the Bible itself. Even today The Pilgrim's Progress offers themes and struggles that would resonate with any modern Christian.
Even More to Love in Graphic Novel Format
Now there is even more to love with The Pilgrim’s Progress Graphic Novel Set. This special edition 2-volume set of The Pilgrim's Progress is shortened and retold in graphic novel form for those who want to know Bunyan's story but find the language of the original difficult to understand.
Refreshing and Accessible
Refreshingly readable, the best elements of Bunyan’s rich prose are now accessible for the modern reader, and the detailed color illustrations of The Pilgrim’s Progress Graphic Novel Set will delight readers of any age and will develop better comprehension of the spiritual significance of the words.
In Volume 1, Christian begins his travels from his hometown, the City of Destruction (this world) to the Celestial City (that which is to come: Heaven). In Volume 2, Christian completes his journey.
In keeping with a typical graphic novel style, several figures are drawn in a way that many of us consider to be a poor role model for modesty. Overall we think that The Pilgrim’s Progress Graphic Novel Set is still excellent, but many parents will want to peruse it with some white-out before they hand it to their child.Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2015 Fourth-Grade Curriculum Kit!
