The Pilgrim’s Progress is indeed a masterpiece that all believers should read. And in fact, it was for centuries, right alongside the Bible in most homes and schools. The relatable stories and spiritual focus also made it a wonderful tool in the hands of Christian missionaries. Ironically, one of my reviewers for the book mentioned that he read it in high school during the 1950’s—you will not hear of that today! However, the book was more than just read, it was also discussed in groups with parents, teachers, and fellow church members.
If it was important to read and study the book then, why not now? I think that it is! For this reason, I created The Pilgrim’s Progress Study Guide.
Get the Study that goes with the Book
Each chapter, subsection, and discussion question are designed to be used in conjunction with my new version The Pilgrim’s Progress: A Modern-Day Version of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress. Other versions of the book will feel drastically different and not match up with the study questions and format of this book.
Why is that? Well, Bunyan’s original version of the book is not only very difficult to read but is broken into ten segments that he refers to as “stages” rather than the twelve chapters and subsections that my book and study guide utilize. Other more “readable” versions might include chapter headings, but it will not align with the sessions that correspond with this study. In addition, many leave out key text and do not keep with Bunyan’s original intentions for the book.
Also, if your completing this study in a group setting, it would be helpful if each participant had the same book to make class discussion time more beneficial.
