This book was different. The story is extremely well written and maintains the rich flavor of the original story of Christian's journey of faith and his arrival in the Enchanted City. I read this version aloud to my four children, and they loved it. It is a chapter book, even though it looks like a simple "storybook." We took about a week with it at an approximately 20 minute per day rate. There are some alterations from the original, but nothing that changes the tone of the story.
The illustrations are exquisite, and I love how there are small paintings scattered throughout the text and not just large, page filling pictures. We checked it out from the library to read, and I enjoyed it so much I am planning to purchase a copy for our home collection.
There is also a music CD available with contemporary Christian songs that tie to the story line. ........
Schmidt's storytelling is augmented by Moser's vibrant paintings, which are often reminiscent of Norman Rockwell`s style. He uses subjects from across several centuries and walks of life, and this gives a stimulating breadth to the story. Christian, an Everyman in a baseball cap and blue jeans, greets the distinguished African-American Evangelist with the same equanimity as the Medieval gatekeeper Goodwill. It is all a dream, after all, so why shouldn't the characters appear in unpredictable ways?). The monsters and perils Christian meets along the way are grimly terrible, quite in line with Bunyan's classic, but sensitive children may be troubled by images of the creeping company of demons, the brooding Pagan, and especially the dragon Apollyon, who is rendered so vividly that he seems to belong in a graphic horror novel rather than in a Christian children's book. Just as in all the good stories, however, evil is soundly defeated, and Death itself is shown to have lost its sting (1 Corinthians 15:53-55).
This book may be best suited to an elementary audience for read-aloud, and upper-elementary and middle school for reading alone. It fills in some plot gaps that Dangerous Journey leaves out, and bridges a language gap for those who may have trouble with Hunkin's version.Read more ›

The original Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan may have a strong position in the history of literature, but it puts off many readers for its wordiness and preachiness. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Marshall Vandruff

This is a phenomenal retelling, probably geared towards teens or young adults, although younger kids would be able to read it well enough and older people would still enjoy it. Read morePublished on June 4, 2014 by Jess
