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.

Not the best version for an audio book

Pilgrims Progress is a wonderful book filled with allegories for the Christian journey. However, this particular version includes full scripture for said allegories. If a person was reading the book, it wouldn't be a big deal. However, because this is an audio book, the story is interrupted every few words to input scripture. For example (and I am just making up this quote) " Evangelist said 'You must flee" Scripture: (full scripture is read) 'Keep running and don't look back' Scripture (full scripture is read). The narrator always introduces the scripture by saying "Scripture". This happens about every sentence, sometimes occurring multiple times within a single sentence. This makes it impossible for the listener to follow the story, because there isn't enough uninterrupted dialog to focus on. My suggestion would be to read the book, or find another audible version that allows the story to flow.
