For more than three centuries both Christians and non-Christians, young and old, have been fascinated by the characters and story of John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress. In this breathtakingly beautiful edition of Bunyan’s classic, updated in today’s language, the characters are brought to life in color images taking you on a visually stunning journey with Christian as he seeks the Celestial City. When you encounter Evangelist, Hypocrisy, Faithful, and others, you’ll better understand life’s joy s and sorrows on this side of heaven. 
 
Little Pilgrim’s Progress – This version is for kids. Fifty-five years ago, Helen L Taylor took John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress and simplified the vocabulary and concepts for young readers while keeping the storyline intact. The result was a classic in itself, which has now sold over 600,000 copies. It’s both a simple adventure story and a profound allegory of the Christian journey through life, a delightful read with a message kids ages 6 to 12 can understand and remember. A new look and fresh illustrations for today’s children enlivens the journey to the Celestial City.
