First sentence I had a dream last night Like moonlight through the window of my cell it fell on me not so big as to fall one night large enough to fill the rest of my life. Premise plot This is an adaptation a retelling of the classic allegorical novel, Pilgrim s Progress Christian, in this version, is a young boy Hopeful, Christian s companion along the way, is a young girl The book has been completely rewritten as prose And most if not all the names have been changed For example, Obstinate and Pliable become Ob Stinate and Mr Bendy Because Christian is a young boy not a married man with a wife and children of his own there is no room for the sequel Also the order of events have been shuffled around a bit.

A retelling of John Bunyan s classic for children While I am told that there are things missing and or rearranged from the original, I was delighted by this allegorical tale of our spiritual journey on Earth I think that for children it was just right It was on their level and easily understood with maybe a little explanation The main character is named Christian and he runs into people like Ob Stinate , Miss Stake , Faithful , Hopeful , Miss Trust , Alec Smart , etc He starts in his town of City of Destruction and makes his way through places like Great Bog , Vanity Fair , Lucre Hill , and Castle Doubting all on his way to the City of Gold I really enjoyed it and the thought process it brought out and look forward to reading the original. A book I have been wanting to read for years Unputdownable read until the end. A great story written by John Bunyan, stays true to elements of the Bible such as the lions Christian faces a nod to the story of Daniel and the marketplace chapter aswell where Christ knocks down all the market stalls.
