John Bunyan himself was a wonderful man who paid a high price for his beliefs, and he deserves a greater place in religious history than he has.
Thus begins Pilgrim’s Progress, the man is named Christian and his question, ”what shall I do”, is our question. His plight is our own. First we must weep, for we all carry a burden of sin, which only the Cross can remove. His walk to Glory is our walk. His adventures warn us of the many snares the enemy will set for us. And most of all, his hope is our hope. Let yourself suspend your 21st century way of viewing things. In order to fully appreciate a work such as this, it is helpful if the reader accepts the reality the author presents, such as the world Lewis creates for us in Narnia, or Middle Earth, by Tolkin. The same approach will greatly assist in the reading of Pilgrims Progress. Bunyan puts the teller of his tale in a dream state, which is appropriate for a walk of faith, for in this world, we do see, “thru a glass darkly”. Walk with Christian. Meet his helpers and his enemies on his road of life. Learn from his mistakes. See yourself in the people he meets. Appreciate the courage that God gives us to fight the good fight. C. S. Lewis, in one of his essays, encourages us to read “old books”. One of his reasons is that old books have passed the test of time. Pilgrims Progress has definitely passed the test of time. That is why, although written in 1568, it has never been out of print and has been printed in over 200 languages.
I also think this book will be more appreciated by people who have been a Christian for a while. It makes more sense to me now reading it as an adult than it did when read to me as a child. This book has a lot of discussions of what true spirituality means. There is even a discussion about suicide.
If you have read the Bible then you should have no problem reading this. I found it easy to read but lately I've been reading older books. John Bunyan sure had a good working knowledge of the Bible. I'm glad I've read the Bible at least once through because it helped me understand this book better.
Throughout the book there are little poems that the travelers sing which makes the book sort of quaint. I think it was worth reading and can recommend it to you.
