This book was read for the first time when our boys were about 8 and 10.They might not have understood everything, but the style of writing made for a fun read aloud. We have read it several times individually and collectively since then. It is a favorite of our family. The lessons are thought provoking and creatively presented. We have given out about 30+ copies through the years as gifts. I only wish more families were raised with this classic!

If you have no desire to tackle the "old English" then this is the Pilgrim's Progress for you. Everyone should read The Pilgrims Progress as well as Hinds Feet For High Places. We need to read the classics and this one is an easy read.

This is the BEST version I have EVER read, and I have had several versions. It is easy to understand, and looses none of the insights/lessons that other easy-to-understand versions lost in the translation. It is wonderful, as is its sequel Christiana-

This is the easiest to read format of this story I've found, that still retains the original flavor of the language. A wonderful book with a wonderful message, fun to read, holds kids' attention, but still sounds like John Bunyan!

How many of you tried reading Pilgrim’s Progress as youngster and gave up because you couldn’t understand the Old English script? I did. Well here is retelling of that ancient allegory in a simple, dialogical style even small children can enjoy, while still maintaining the powerful message of the original–a message that will challenge, encourage, and spiritually strengthen young and old alike.

While the script style of Bunyan’s original Pilgrim’s Progress was difficult to follow, the dialogical style of Pappas’ amplification makes this story an engaging read for anyone. As an author myself, I have learned the power that dialogue has for holding a reader’s attention. And for all you fellow teachers out there, you know as well as I that you can hold your students interest much better when you make your lessons conversational rather than one-sided lectures.

The New Amplified Pilgrim’s Progress has the same power, attained through the use of a flowing storyline and dialogue in place of monologue. No matter your age, you will find The New Amplified Pilgrim’s Progress difficult to put down!

Review at Vine Voice

Pappas' adaptation adds a new dimension of adventure and humor by amplifying selected passages; however he takes care to preserve the powerful impact, beauty, and message of Bunyan's unabridged storyline. Pappas uses his skills as a storyteller to introduce a new generation to the message of love, joy, and hope of Bunyan's classic masterpiece by zeroing in on the fascination with angels and supernatural beings that intrigue young fantasy readers of today.

The New Amplified Pilgrim's Progress is an unabridged retelling of John Bunyan's immortal classic. This book is trully an American masterpiece, full of gems and shining light from the throne of heaven to the mortals below. Jim Pappas rewrote this without altering the original intent and with careful reverence. Jim Pappas, the admiring adapter, sees himself meeting John Bunyan in heaven. How cool is that! Me too!

I place this work in the top five books that have powerfully shaped my walk with Christ. Never before in my life have spiritual truths "come to life" as they do through Christian's journey. I have been truly enlightened thanks to the work of the Holy Spirit through Mr. Bunyan and Mr. Pappas. I have highly recommended this book to family and friends, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a greater understanding of the believer's walk down the narrow path that leads to Life.
