Pilgrims Progress: A Retelling by John Bunyan, Gary D. Schmidt, Barry Moser

Originally written at a jail cell desk in 1675, John Bunyans Pilgrims Progress quickly grew in popularity second only to the Bible itself, and it has seen countless editions and printings over the years. Gary Schmidt has now recaptured this story of everymans quest for life in contemporary language for a new generation of readers. This volume offers a superb original retelling of Bunyans beloved classic, masterfully illustrated with fifty dramatic watercolors by Barry Moser. Here again is the tale of Christians spiritual journey from the City of Destruction to the Heavenly Palaces, including the pitfalls and graces that threaten and fortify his epic pilgrimage. Matching Bunyans flare for storytelling and vivid imagery, Gary Schmidts new narrative also echoes the best of writers like Dante, Sir Thomas Browne, E. M. Forster, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. Barry Mosers illustrations bring Bunyans unforgettable characters and landscapes to life in fresh ways. While Christian himself is interpreted as a contemporary figure, Moser portrays the storys characters within different historical eras, powerfully enhancing their symbolic meanings for todays readers while also showing their common tie to humankind throughout the ages. Even after three centuries, this odyssey of faith and human perseverance still appeals to a wide audience. This new retelling of Pilgrims Progress will stand repeated readings as it speaks to the experiences and stirs the imaginations of both young and old.
