The Pilgrim's Progress for the 21st Century: A Modern Adaptation of the John Bunyan Classic
by David Harakal
In this modern adaptation of John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress , Christian Pilgrim drives a high-end SUV with his wife and three teenaged children toward Celestial City and the promise of relief from the burden of their sins. They stay in B&Bs and inns, eat in diners and cafes as they confront the same sins that plagued Bunyan’s characters yet with expressions sometimes unimaginable 350 years ago. Pilgrim’s Progress Through the 21st Century will resonate with the modern reader as the original has for centuries. This adaptation is the first to update context and language while preserving the characters, form, and flow of Bunyan’s bestselling allegory. Students of the classic text, and those intimidated by it, will both relate to Christian and his family as they struggle to be the men and women God intends them to be.
