The Pilgrim’s Progress Part 2 Christiana’s Journey

A Readable Modern-Day Version of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress Part 2

The Pilgrims Progress Part 2

Return Once again to the Epic Adventures of The Pilgrim’s Progress!

The Pilgrim’s Progress, Part 1, chronicles the epic adventure of a man named Christian who leaves his home and family in the City of Destruction to begin a lifelong quest for the Celestial City. In Part 2, his wife, Christiana, must now examine her own beliefs while grieving her husband’s death. She’s torn between following Christian on a hazardous pilgrimage along a narrow way or staying in the place she knows best, the City of Destruction.

The harsh journey is wrought with obstacles, danger, and peril, and many have turned back for fear of their lives. Can she and her four boys really make it there, joining Christian and being rewarded with everlasting life? She just has to believe they can. Thus begins one family’s eternal quest to follow their husband and father into the kingdom of glory.

Losing no faithfulness to Bunyan’s original text, The Pilgrim’s Progress, Part 2 Christiana’s Journey follows the adventures of Christiana, her four boys, and a host of memorable characters who either help or hinder their progress on their journey to faith.

The book includes the original Bible references, and a Bible study guide is available separately for individual and small group use.

Yes. The most important consideration was to convert the original, archaic language into simple conversational English without losing any faithfulness to Bunyan’s text. When compared to the original version, you will find no key element missing. What you will find is sentence construction and certain interpretations of character reactions modified or enhanced to produce a more contemporary style of expression without sacrificing the intrinsic message. Also, instead of using the antiquated term “stages” to separate book sections, you will find chapter headings and subdivisions.

This book only includes Part 2 which chronicles the journey of Christiana and her sons to the Celestial City. Part 1 chronicles the journey of her husband, Christian. Part 1 can be found here.

The book is appropriate for all readers 12 and up and is a favorite of renowned authors such as Charles Spurgeon, C.S. Lewis, John Newton, George Whitefield, and many others.

Yes. The Pilgrim’s Progress Part 2 Study Guide, available separately, will guide you through Bunyan’s masterful use of metaphors to a better understanding of key concepts of the book, supporting Bible passages, and the relevance to our world today. Each study question is ideal for group discussion and answers to each question are available online.

No. Although, there are many versions of this Bunyan classic, this version is the only book made specifically for this study. Each chapter, sub section, and study question of both the book and study guide are designed to be used with each other. Other book versions will feel drastically different and not match up with the study questions and format of this study.

Again, Alan Vermilye has taken an excellent text which would have otherwise been lost on the majority of modern society due to being hard to understand and he has brought it back to life in very simple, easy to understand, modern day English.
