 His Progress, Your Journey.

A beautiful masterpiece worth reading and rereading—expanding and amplifying the wonder, yet maintaining the original essence.

 

Abraham Lincoln and Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women” were ardent admirers of John Bunyan’s wondrous allegory, The Pilgrim’s Progress. Now beginning its fourth century of popularity, this book has been copiously quoted by countless authors, preachers, and orators for hundreds of years.

 

Now in modern English comes The New Amplified Pilgrim’s Progress. All of the age-old spiritual treasures that have made John Bunyan’s original the world’s best-selling non-biblical masterpiece in all of history are now carried to new heights of power and clarity in this new enhanced version. 

 

While this is perhaps the most adventure-filled and user-friendly adaption ever penned, it is totally unabridged and, excepting certain amplified scenes, remains strictly faithful to John Bunyan’s original storyline.

 

Exciting new levels of love and joy, hope and humor are skillfully woven by master storyteller Jim Pappas into this enchanting retelling of John Bunyan’s immortal classic! The New Amplified Pilgrim’s Progress is especially designed to return this spellbinding masterpiece of angels and giants, castles and dragons to the fireside of today’s everyday reader.

    An Unabridged Adaptation of John Bunyan¿s Memorable Classic Eve

    An Unabridged Adaptation of John Bunyan’s Memorable Classic Even after
    four centuries John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" continues to
    retain a high ranking and significant readership in classic literature.
    “The New Amplified Pilgrim’s Progress” sheds light and clarity on the
    spiritual riches of the original masterpiece. James Pappas Jr. combines
    modern language with patterns of speech of Bunyan’s classic writing.
    Pappas’ adaptation adds a new dimension of adventure and humor by
    amplifying selected passages; however he takes care to preserve the
    powerful impact, beauty, and message of Bunyan’s unabridged storyline.
    Pappas uses his skills as a storyteller to introduce a new generation to
    the message of love, joy, and hope of Bunyan’s classic masterpiece by
    zeroing in on the fascination with angels and supernatural beings that
    intrigue young fantasy readers of today. Memorable original
    illustrations faithfully depict the picturesque word pictures describing
    the familiar Wicket Gate, the Slough of Despond, Vanity Fair, the land
    of Beulah, and many other places Christian passes through along the way.
    Other illustrations picture the characters, testing, and conflict that
    confront him throughout his journey. The life changing potential of
    “The New Amplified Pilgrim’s Progress” makes this an important book for
    shared family reading, a must for Christian School and Church libraries,
    and an important classic for every home-schooler’s reading list. A
    complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The
    opinions expressed are my own.
