Publishers Description An odyssey of faith for the modern world. Journey with Christian through the perils of the modern world in this extraordinary re-creation of John Bunyan's 17th century classic. Set against the landscape of the new millennium, the Dump of Despond now brims with the toxic waste of tabloids and broken relationships. Worldy Wiseman tells us all roads lead to the light, and the Prince of Power snares his victims with tantalizing media images Pilgrim's Progress Today is a book for our times. It confronts head-on the messages peddled by our culture and exposes what is deceptive in terms everyone can understand. Like Christian, we see things as they really are--the virtual reality of our new millennium is an unsatisfying substitute for the epic adventure of real life, which is still only found on the journey from the foot of the cross to the gate of Celestial City.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pilgrim's Progress Today?
Wow Sep 7, 2003
As an author, I read a lot of books and seldom do I read one so powerful as this. As I followed Christian's journey, his story, his failings, his insights pricked my heart to respond. To read a book that not only tells a story, but shows you your own life. . . Well, that's powerful.
Author, Lael Arrington, has taken this timeless tale and set it in a contemporary world. I would encourage all who want to see clearly the heartbeat of God in a modern-day world to read Pilgrim's Progress Today.
A Grand Adventure! Oct 31, 2002
Lael Arrington has written a masterpiece! With high adventure, suspense, intrigue, and creative plot twists, the reader is instantly captured by the story of Chris, a young man who is on a quest for meaning in Pilgrim's Progress Today. The plot is reminiscent of the first journey Pilgrim took, but Lael brilliantly transposes this trip into modern times, and "identity points" that all of us can personalize. Whether young or old, this book should be read by every Christian who is seeking a life worth living in God's Grand Story!
