It is our hope and prayer, then, that this audio will fascinate and captivate the hearts and minds of this generation today, as was the case when The Pilgrim's Progress was first published more than three centuries ago.

I love the clean and crisp narration, not too hurried nor slow, modern English.
This would be my first time "reading" Pilgrim's Progress. I thought it was a great read for everyone, not only Christians. Although I found out that there is a part 2.This audiobook is abridged to part 1 only, this does not extend to Christiana (Christian's wife) and her children's pilgrim
This book shows the journey of a Christian from accepting Christ to arrival in the promised land. It shows, through a story, most of the challenges that a Christian will face. Much better lessons then most of the "how to" Christian stuff out there today.
One of western civilization's great works.
I haven't read the original, but this edit seemed well done - certainly easy to understand.
This is a classic, not just a Christian classic. This audio presentation was well narrated with the appropriate changes in voice an inflections.
Superior quality also.
I guess this book is basically a sign of the times in which it was written, but I did not find it morally uplifting but simplistic and repetitious with its message. It may well have been the most loved and published book of its time, as stated in the lengthy forward. I can only guess that the people who so loved this book were uneducated and unable to think for themselves. There are also several very anti-Catholic references in this book as well. I could not finish it. The reader was pretty good, I just could not focus on this story and lost track of the thin story line several times.
