Pilgrim’s Progress

John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress is one of the great works of Christian literature, but how many Christians today can say that they have read it? Answers in Genesis has produced an excellent dramatized version of the entire book, unabridged (hearing the old English takes a little getting used to, but if you’re unfamiliar with Puritan writing it’s often easier to hear it than to read it). I’ve listened to it with the kids on Lord’s Day afternoons, and the dramatizations (music, sounds, dramatic readings, etc.) keep their attention – especially the scene in Doubting Castle and Giant Despair. I know they aren’t getting everything, but I am thankful to be able to introduce them to this work that I hope to read to them multiple times before they leave my roof.


One response to this post.

    That sounds cool. I have read Pilgrim’s Progress, but I wonder at what age to start it with kids. Is John too young? What do you think?
