How would John Bunyan have written Pilgrims Progress if he had lived today instead of the 1600s? "Pilgrims Progress in Today's Language and Today's World" recreates the John Bunyan classic and sets it in today's culture. John Bunyan's theological views are much different than those of many Christian church goers today. Bunyan would heartily agree with J.I. Packer's statement: "North American Protestantism: 3,000 miles wide and half an inch deep." Even more shockingly, John Bunyan's spiritual take on the politics of his time set in today's political environment might stun liberals and conservatives alike. Each chapter of this book tries to faithfully mirror the corresponding chapter in the original work. Many commentaries on Pilgrims Progress were studied to keep this book as authentic as possible. Scriptural references were inserted next to the relevant text so you can understand John Bunyan's theological purpose. At times the author, Pat Campo, had to rein in his creativity to preserve John Bunyan's book structure and theological message. For example, beginning in Chapter 7 (Christian Arrives at the Wicket Gate) the book's setting becomes more spiritual and less worldly. It's also the reason the original character names and chapter titles were kept so you can easily compare this book to the original Pilgrims Progress and decide for yourself the similarity of the two books. The purpose of this book is to make Pilgrims Progress clearer, more relevant and meaningful to today's readers. If you've never read Pilgrims Progress, this book will give you the meaning of it without having to wrestle with archaic language. Get it now to discover what Pilgrims Progress would look like set in today's world.
