Publisher's Summary

Often disguised as something that would help him, evil accompanies Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. As you walk with him, you'll begin to identify today's many religious pitfalls. These are presented by men such as Pliable, who turns back at the Slough of Despond; and Ignorance, who believes he's a true follower of Christ when he's really only trusting in himself. Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you.

Annoying

Trying to follow the story line is useless! We have read other versions of Pilgrims Progress several times and never had to endure having every scripture reference quoted in full inserted as an interruption into the narrative. Sometimes more than once per sentence! The whole story is impossible to enjoy. I am removing it from my library, sorry I bought it.

Glitchy

I do not wish to rate the story as such as it needs nothing from me and I could add nothing to its understanding after a few hundred years of comment.

I do not want my comments of the performance to be a reflection on Mr. Christensen. His portion was done quite well. Rather I have a couple technical complaints.

1) Often voices/effects would be heard out of place in the story. There was one 5-10 second chunk of silence near the end of Christian's story.
2) The voice effects for the villains was not bad but the sound level of the voice fell below the effect necessitating playing with the volume knob.
3) Always, always check to make sure music does not mask the narration.
4) This version includes the scripture references, which is great when you are reading (I got the matched kindle/audible set) but during an audio presentation it tends to disrupt the flow. I find this a common problem with Christian books. Listening, enjoying, learning, then an interruption for what are basically parenthetical comments. If I'm listening I'm generally not in a position to look up references, make note of them or do anything with them.
