Overview

Little Pilgrim's Progress: From John Bunyan's Classic by Helen L. Taylor


Fifty-five years ago, Helen L. Taylor took John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress and simplified the vocabulary and concepts for young readers while keeping the storyline intact. The result was a classic in itself, which has now sold over 600,000 copies. It's both a simple adventure story and a profound allegory of the Christian journey through life, a delightful read with a message kids ages 6 to 12 can understand and remember. A new look and fresh illustrations for today's children enlivens the journey to the Celestial City.

This is a terrific little book.  Until a few years ago, the two books most sold - and read - in the English language, were the Bible, of course, and John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress".  The Bible has been retranslated many times in the last 40 years, and remains easily accessible in the English language.  But "Pilgrim's Progress" has become inaccessible to most, since the language is nearly 4 centuries old.  But still, a very wonderful book.  I recall Earl Palmer, the long-time pastor of First Presbyterian church in Berkeley, reading excerpts of the book to a group of young Christian leaders in Washington - and seeing how astounded they were at the power of this very old book, which they had never read.   Helen Taylor, for Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, tried to make this book accessible to children in the mid-20th Century.  My brothers and I remember hearing it as our parents read it to us, and it in turn opened the original classic to us.  However, she -- as one reviewer has noted - probably came closer to speaking the language of pre-teens than of 6 year olds.  With that in mind, it remains very readable, the language understandable, and the story quite unexpected and exciting to those who read it for the first time. One or two reviewers have made snide remarks about this being a Christian book -- meaning, a book for fools.  Nothing could be further from the truth: it's a literate, thoughtful, and compelling story, which lays out honestly the struggle of the Christian life, what is at stake, and how we can live it.  Buy it to read to your children or grandchildren, or just buy it for yourself.  It's an unknown little treasure, waiting to be discovered.
