Pilgrim’s Progress, John Bunyan

How have I not found the time to read this book before?

Must be those 3 accursed daughters of Adam the First: the Lust of the Flesh, the Lust of the Eyes and the Pride of Life.

Flee people! And go buy this book. It is full of precious insights and timely warnings for every Christian in every walk of life who will but take a little time to read Bunyan’s illuminating tale. The pages are literally soaked with Scripture. In this post-modern age, with all the rage of emergent liberalism and making Jesus and the Bible relevant, I find Pilgrim’s Progress a refreshing reminder of the fact that the Word of God is the lasting standard by which all doctrine must be evaluated. Too many books and other media forms which attempt to teach theology are sorely lacking in this. Phrases such as “The Bible says this…”, “God wants this…” abound, but no where are the words of Scripture to be found. No such flaw with THIS book.

Warning: Buying an unabridged version might give you a terrible headache. Slightly abridged recommended for the reader who would like to preserve the prose of the original but would appreciate the much needed modernising touch of archaic language.
