HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics.THE PILGRIM'S PROGRESS, John Bunyan's masterful religious allegory, narrates the journey of an everyman hero, Christian, as he attempts to navigate the trials and tribulations of this world, the City of Destruction, on the path towards paradise, the Celestial City. Though weighed down by the burden of original sin, Christian overcomes the distractions of the world, moving past the Slough of Despond, the Hill of Difficulty and the Valley of the Shadow of Death, while simultaneously resisting the temptations of the Worldy Wise, the Vain and the Ignorant. The product of a lifetime of religious work and thought, Bunyan's virtuosic narrative fundamentally altered Protestant belief, and remains one of the most important and influential works in the English language.

This is one of the best literary stories of all time! John Bunyan did an excellent job using the literary technique of allegory. This book has spiritual insights to help encourage and teach the reader. The plot is very engaging and the reader will enjoy the characters, especially Christian. This is a must read!

I've always found this story inspiring. The English takes some getting use to at first but if you work through the first few sections you'll start picking up on the rhythm of the words.
