Publishers Description This volume offers a superb retelling in contemporary language of John Bunyan's beloved classic, masterfully illustrated with fifty watercolor paintings by Barry Moser.
Here again is the tale of Christian's spiritual journey from the City of Destruction to the Heavenly Palaces, including the pitfalls and graces that threaten and fortify his epic pilgrimage. Matching Bunyan's flare for storytelling and vivid imagery, Gary Schmidt's new narrative also echoes the best of writers like Dante, Sir Thomas Browne, E.M. Forster, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.
Even after three centuries, this odyssey of faith and human perseverance continues to engage readers today and now, more than ever, Schmidt's retelling of "Pilgrim's Progress" will delight and stir the imagination of readers over and over again.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pilgrim's Progress (Illustrated)?
Very much worth the read, matching, if not surpassing the original Mar 14, 2009
The same story from a different speaker can improve much upon the first. "Pilgrim's Progress" is a retelling of John Bunyan's original story of a Christian's journey to the Heavenly Palace. A modern spin on the subject matter with a more common language and brilliant and beautiful watercolors from Barry Moser, Gary Schmidt's rendition of "Pilgrim's Progress" is very much worth the read, matching, if not surpassing the original.
