With wife Christiana initially mocking her husband for his faith he leaves the wicked city of Destruction and goes on a pilgrimage leading to heaven's gate. A nightmare of her killing words and eventual dream of husband in heaven will set her and her kids on a journey you will not forget. Symbolic to our lives, we must endure trials but a settled resolve to continue living for Him awaits eternal awards. John Bunyan will cement concepts of both Godly and carnal living that will demonstrate a Biblical viewpoint with excellent practical application.
Discover how God builds grace in our equation while you learn lessons, for example, from the chicken yard:
--He is there to remind us we are never alone.
--God calls us to feed upon His word
--He invites us to rest under His wings
Allow this delightful book to slowly, page by page, make your determination stronger to live for Him without compromise. Here is an excerpt of a quote I leave you with. " Where I cannot run, I shall walk, and where I cannot walk, I shall creep. But come hell or high water, I am resolved that when I die, my body shall fall toward the city.". I enjoyed this book and feel you will also find it delightful.
One of the things I loved about this book is that it really gets you to thinking about the object lessons all around you. Of course, the book itself is an allegory, and almost every character in it and obstacles they overcome is an object lesson in an of itself. Yet, within the storyline of the allegory, the traveling pilgrim band learns to see object lessons everywhere, even in the common and mundane scenes and events of life. After reading in the book, I would go back to my everyday duties looking for those same sorts of object lessons. And I, too, would realize that they are everywhere, to be found in almost every aspect of our lives. Little “pictures” that God has put there to turn our thoughts toward Him throughout the day, if we train our eyes to see them.
Another beautiful lesson that really impacted me from this book was that not all pilgrims have to be strong and bold to make it to the kingdom. There are those pilgrims who are weak and faltering, but who are pilgrims heading for the kingdom nonetheless. God has a special place in His heart for these childlike ones. Amidst the stories in Pilgrim’s Progress and Christiana filled with heroes like Christian, Faithful, Hopeful, Christiana, Matthew, Mercy, and Great-Heart, it would be easy to get the impression that to be a pilgrim, one must be as bold and brave as a lion. When you first begin reading, you might begin feeling discouraged because you are one of those Christians who fights against fears, anxieties, and uncertainty. That’s where this book will offer your the most hope and encouragement if you just keep reading. You will meet Miss Fearing and Ready-to-Halt and Mr. Feeble Mind. And you will learn that sometimes those who are weakest in outward strength are strongest in inward qualities. Not only that, but the Lord has made ample provision for whomever wills to enter the kingdom of heaven. No temptation or trial is ever too much for you to bear. Those of you on the other side of the spectrum who find it easier to be courageous and strong will learn to take care that you do not judge the weaker pilgrims. Though Mr. Feeble Mind was slow to understand the deep theological discussions his companions held, he never for a minute would have harbored even the thought of turning back when facing difficulty, as some of the others would. So, whether strong in faith and virtue, or weak and childlike in spirit, you can rest assured that our merciful Lord will pave your path in accordance with your infirmities.
There were other lessons that stood out to me from this book. One is the power of prayer. While "The New Amplified Pilgrim’s Progress" emphasized the power of God’s Word, this book expounds on that by adding the power of storming the gates of heaven in prayer. Another point this book made was that when we are victorious as Christians, we can make the way easier for those who follow after us. This Christiana and her band did time and time again, and they also found parts of their path easier by learning from the mistakes of Christian and his companion who went before them. Your life will be touched and your faith grown through these and many other lessons when you read "Pilgrim’s Progress Part 2 (Christiana)."

Believe unto the Gospel "Good News" of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and you shall be saved!" By faith ALONE that He is who He said He is: I and the Father are One (John 10:30). Jesus is God, that He died for your sins and rose again defeating death. It is by Christ ALONE one can be saved (John 14:6).
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlastinglife (John 3:16)

Storyline leads pretty quickly from the Husbands experience at the start, so you don't have to be re-reading to get the gist of the plot.
Too many old "thees and thous" words to get through, so they kinda interrupt the flow of the story.
