Pilgrim's Progress in Today's English by John Bunyan; Retold by James Thomas
In both versions, the allegory is of a Christian's pilgrimage from his realization of his need for Christ to reaching Christ's heavenly city. The allegory serves as a launch pad into scripture and a frank and sincere discussion of the struggles that are common to all who seek to follow Christ. The modern English is helpful to today's readers, but, in my opinion, doesn't detract from Bunyan's original tale.
I wish to thank Moody Publishers for supplying me with a complimentary copy for my review.
