This new, complete edition, written in plain, modern English, is an enriching complement to any Christian's personal library. The Pilgrim's Progress in Modern English will be enjoyed and treasured by people of all ages for years to come.
John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress was the second most widely and deeply read book in the English-speaking world for many, many years, the Bible being the first. Bunyan lived during the turbulent times of English Civil War and strife between the Established Church of England and the Nonconformists. Parliment and the Nonconformists went to war against King Charles and the Church of England (1642-1648). At age sixteen, Bunyan was drafted into the Protestant army and served two years. The Nonconformists, under Oliver Cromwell won, and Bunyan returned to Bedford, married, was baptized, and travelled the preaching circuit, where he became widely known for his powerful message. When Oliver Cromwell died, his dictatorship fell with him, and Charles II, (son of the beheaded Charles I) came to power, as did the Church of England. Bunyan was sent to jail in 1660 because he refused to stop preaching, and remained there for twelve years, until Charles II suspended all laws against the Nonconformists. The first part of Pilgrim's Progress, most of which had been written in jail, was published in 1678. Part two was published in 1684. As originally written, John Bunyan's narrative of the pilgrim Christian and his wife, Christina, is difficlut to read and out of date. For the person who may love to read passages over and over, with a dictionary of middle English and Anglo-Saxon words in his lap, the orginal edition is a delight. However, hurdle after hurdle destroys the cadence and rhythm of Bunyan's prose. Nor is the average reader aware that many of the words used by Bunyan have changed in meaning, at times drastically. It is the translation of obscufre medievel Anglo-Saxon words which is this edition's most valuable contribution. For the reader anxious to return to the language of Bunyan's original edition, he or she may now do so fully armed with knowledge of the change of meaning in words, and a true "translation" of the more obscure passages of The Pilgrim's Progress.
Retold by James H. Thomas, the best allegory ever written is rewritten in modern English, making it clearer and more forceful to the modern reader (more than 100,000 in print).

Bonus - Includes Part II Often disguised as something that would help him, evil accompanies Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. As you walk with him, you’ll begin to identify today’s many religious pitfalls. These are presented by men such as Pliable, who turns back at the Slough of Despond; and Ignorance, who believes he’s a true follower of Christ when he’s really only trusting in himself. Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you. The best part of this book is the Bible verses added to the text. The original Pilgrim’s Progress listed the Bible verse references, but the verses themselves are so impactful when tied to the scenes in this allegory, that they are now included within the text of this book. The text is tweaked just enough to make it readable today, for the young and the old. Youngsters in particular will be drawn to the original illustrations included in this wonderful classic.

This is another great allegorical story by this gifted writer. Every Christian should thrill again as he or she reads this allegory of their experience. For in the days of our unbelief did we not yield allegiance to the Devil, and did we not seek to avoid looking into the face of Emmanuel? Were we not all children of wrath with the rest of them, by our self-love being held captive by the prince of the power of the air. Eph. 2:1. This book is no classic by accident. It speaks to the soul of every honest saint of God. Despite the fact that its theme is not a popular one, it is so true to Christian experience that it has been printed and reprinted for three centuries. Anyone who has not read it is the poorer for it. For it is a picture of the struggle of the saints against temptation and doubt, against pride and false security, against sloth, etc. We are sinners saved by grace, but the body of death remains (Rom. 7:24). Bunyan (1628-1688) is without doubt the most famous of the Baptists. He is known to have preached to thousands from a hilltop. On one of these occasions John Owen went to hear him, coming away with unstinted praise for the humble, yet powerful, preacher of righteousness.

About John Bunyan: John Bunyan (1628-1688) was born at Elstow, England, about a mile from Bedford, and became one of the most influential authors of the seventeenth century. Few writers in history have left such a wealth of Christ-centered writings. Bunyan's moving conversion is recorded in his Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners. While walking the streets of Bedford, Bunyan heard "three or four poor women" sitting at a door, "talking about the new birth, the work of God in their hearts, and the way by which they were convinced of their miserable state by nature. They told how God had visited their souls with His love in Christ Jesus, and with what words and promises they had been refreshed, comforted, and supported against the temptations of the devil. From these godly women Bunyan learned to despise sin and to hunger for the Savior. Later, while passing into the fields, he recounts, "This sentence fell upon my soul, 'Thy righteousness is in heaven'... for my righteousness was Jesus Christ Himself, the same yesterday, today, and forever." Then "his chains fell off," and he went home rejoicing. Calling to Preach and Arrest In 1655, Bunyan was called to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Bunyan was arrested November 12, 1660, for preaching without the approval of the Anglican Church. He was charged with "teaching men to worship God contrary to the law" and was in jail more than twelve years. His most well-known work, The Pilgrim's Progress, was written while in the Bedford jail. During Bunyan's lifetime there were 100,000 copies circulated in the British isles, besides several editions in North America. It has been continuously in print since its first printing. Bunyan's remarkable imagery was firmly rooted in the biblical doctrines of man's fall, grace, imputation, justification, and the atonement.
