Item description for The Pilgrim's Progress, Deluxe Illustrated Edition
Updated (Pilgrims Progress #1) by John Bunyan & C. J. Lovik...

Edited for ease of reading, this deluxe edition of John Bunyan's Christian allegory makes the original story come to life. With 40 full-page, color illustrations, readers will journey with protagonist Christian as he makes his way to the Celestial City.

Author Bio

C. J. LOVIK graduated from Westmont College California with a degree in Education and Communication and taught Elementary School in Southern California. After teaching for many years, he started a manufacturing business and developed an online family-friendly Internet search engine. At the age of 9, Lovik read John Bunyan's timeless classic Pilgrim's Progress for the first time, and it became his favorite book next to the Bible. During the past twenty years Lovik noticed that fewer and fewer young Christians had been exposed to Pilgrim's Progress. Thus he decided to revise and edit the original version so that it would be easier to read and understand for readers today, while remaining strictly faithful to Bunyan's narrative and preserving the beauty and tone of Bunyan's original work. It is hoped that the final result will reintroduce English-speaking Christians to the most widely read, precious, and imaginative commentary on the meaning of the Bible and the Christian life ever produced in the English language.

MIKE WIMMER has illustrated many children's books, including most recently Robert Burliegh's One Giant Leap and Stealing Home. His books have received the Spur Award (2003), the NCSS/CBC Notable Children's Trade Book in the Field of Social Studies (1990), and the Redbook Best Book (1990).

More About John Bunyan & C. J. Lovik

John Bunyan (1628 1688) was born in Elstow, England, and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he believed God had done for a special purpose.

John Bunyan was an English Christian writer and preacher who is best known for his allegorical novel The Pilgrim' s Progress, published in 1678. Bunyan' s faith was profoundly influenced by two books owned by his wife: Arthur Dent's Plain Man's Pathway to Heaven and Lewis Bayly's Practice of Piety, and he turned to preaching following the death of his guide and mentor, John Gifford.

In November 1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve years. Among the many writings he published during his imprisonment are The Holy City, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and the most famous, The Pilgrim's Progress.

After his release, he continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War, Visions of Heaven and Hell, and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.

SPANISH BIO: John Bunyan nacio en Inglaterra en el 1628. Fue preparado para seguir los pasos de su padre cuando exploto la guerra civil en 1644. Al comienzo del 1648, Bunyan experimento una crisis de fe que duro por muchos anos. Por eso se unio a una iglesia en Bedford, pero pronto fue arrestado ya que sus escritos iban en contra de ciertos grupos de interes. En prision paso doce anos. En aquellos anos escribio su autobiografia Gracia abundante en donde relata su travesia personal. El progreso del pelegrino, su obra mas famosa, llego a ser un clasico literario. Bunyan fallecio el 31 de agosto de 1688.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Pilgrim's Progress, Deluxe Illustrated Edition
Updated?

Book great, binding awful  Mar 24, 2010
This is an excellent edition of the Pilgrim's Progress. I would recommend it to anyone. BUT the pages were incorrectly bound and the book does not close properly - there is a definite "wave" to the pages and space between the pages and the covers when the book is closed. This has happened repeatedly with my orders - two from one account and one from another.
 
Preserving the Literary Beauty while Updating the Language  Oct 22, 2009
There is little argument that no book, outside of the Bible, has had more impact on Christians throughout the last 400 hundred years than Bunyan's classic The Pilgrim's Progress. It is a clear and instructive narrative of so much of the Christian experience of being drawn to Christ, preserved by grace, and delivered into his presence. In my own life I have anchored various moments in Bunyan's imagery, whether the slough of despond or Mr Wordly Wiseman or our friend Goodwill at the Sheep Gate. The book is just a literary and spiritual jewel.

But...there has often been a problem for me in personally getting all that I can get out of it and sharing it with my family. I have often felt like I had to do a lot of extra reading (commentaries) and personal paraphrasing in order to explain the details to my kids (ranging from 4 mos to 14 yrs).

Thankfully the good folks at Crossway publishing have given folks like me a hand. They have published this deluxe hardback edition filled with all kinds of helps to make things easier for us. There are Scripture references at the bottom 0f each page to indicate the passages that correlate to narrative. There is also a comprehensive commentary in the back of the book to further explain various passages. This is not just a few but dozens of explanations of passages that may be hard to understand at first.

Furthermore, and perhaps most importantly, C.J. Lovik has done a fantastic job updating the language for modern readers without compromising the literary beauty of the book.

With this also are forty all-new, full-page, color illustrations by award-winning illustrator Mike Wimmer. This is truly a treat. Wimmer is a terrific artist. His art really serves to help you explain various features when reading the book aloud to a group, like in my case to my family. Our kids often grab the book individually when a picture comes up and stare at it, dissecting the details and processing the reading. It is truly a great combination.

This is a great tool to escort the younger generations into the world of Bunyan's allegorical masterpiece.
 
Well done, but  Oct 14, 2009
I've read a few versions of Pilgrim's Progress, including a childrens version that our family reads every summer (Little Pilgrim's Progress: From John Bunyan's Classic (The Message)). This one seems to be done well, preserving the story, adjusting the language, and including pictures. The book even has sewn binding. What I found disappointing is that it does not include the second half of the story about Christiana. It ends with Christian entering the celestial city. If you're okay with that, then I think you will appreciate this modern edition.
