One of the most influential books in the English language, The Pilgrim's Progress
was written in two parts. The 1st (and most famous) part involves Pilgrim leaving his wife and children and risking everything to get to the heavenly city. The 2nd part, Christiana's Story
, tells the story of how his wife and children follow him to reach the same destination. Travel through this book as an adventure through the Christian life--retold both on paper and in pictures. This sequel has an equal place in the hearts of those that read it some regard it as even better--though it isn't so well known. If you haven't read Christiana's story before then you will enjoy a new set of challenges to overcome as Christian's wife and children make their way to the heavenly city. Yet again, Bunyan's imaginative text brings out practical and necessary lessons that everyone needs to know--both yesterday and today.
Additional features and study sections have been included to help today's generation to understand the book. These will help you to get behind some of the characters and places described. There is a 'life summary' of Bunyan and some ideas on how to use this book. Some archaic words have been changed to modern equivalents but most of the difficult words are dealt with by using a dictionary and footnotes. This means that although Christiana and her family talk like the medieval travelers they are you can understand what they're on about. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
