The Pilgrim's Progress from this world to that which is to come, delivered under the similitude of a dream, by John Bunyan Book Summary
The narrator speaks briefly in the first person at the beginnings of Part I and Part II but then quickly moves into a third-person account of the pilgrims in which their stories are told objectively, as an outside observer would perceive their actions. Once in a while the narrator becomes omniscient and explains the emotional states of the characters.
The Pilgrim's Progress from this world to that which is to come, delivered under the similitude of a dream, by John Bunyan - John Bunyan Book Reviews
A very good book, a little bit of a hard read but well worth the effort. A wonderful portrayal of one's journey from nature to grace and then to Heaven.
This edition has a bare minimum of features (TunaFish#5)
There are many editions of Bunyan's work, so I'll address only this particular vehicle for this work.
This edition is bare-bones, so you get nothing but Bunyan's own words.
ToC is minimal & marginal, including only intro, "story" and conclusion. None of the story parts (chapters) are ID'd -- grrr -- so good luck when iBooks loses your place in the story!
Also, this edition omits the 2nd book of this pair, where Christian returns home to bring his wife & sons beyond the wicket gate.
You get what you pay for, so this is not a bad deal. On the other hand, there are better deals to be had.
Great book (LUCKYLUKESTER22)
A Pilgrim's Progress (Trousers0429)
This story is timeless...amazingly applicable today. The old English is a bit of a struggle at times, but gets easier as you read along. What an adventure!?
Pilgrims Progress (John Bunyon)
A magnificent intercourse of the physical reality of spiritual existence. A must read for all humans whether they accept/reject dreams, mysteries, and hard cold realities. This classic is second to only one and provides a wonderful foundation for profitable debate.
Pilgrim's Progress is great... (yol1huoj)
Literature at its finest (Westerngrizzly)
The pantheon of Christian works undoubtedly includes Pilgrim's Progress. Considering the depth of impact that it had on several centuries of believers, it also ranks as one of the more influential allegories ever crafted.
Must read! Alot to be gotten . (Kbartel923)
Must read ! Alot to be gotten .
The True Believer will be strengthened and encouraged to go on.
The Wandering Sinner will be transformed.
And the Lost will have done precisely what their name infers.
