For 300 years, The Pilgrim's Progress has remained perhaps the best-loved and most read of devotional fictions. In plain yet powerful and moving language, Bunyan tells the story of Christian's struggle to attain salvation and the Gates of Heaven. He must pass through the Slough of Despond, ward off the temptations of Vanity Fair, and fight the monstrous Apollyon. In Part II, his wife and children follow the same path, helped and protected by Great-heart, until for them, too, "the trumpets sound on the other side."

If I purchased a Shakespeare audio book, I would expect a VERBATIM reading of the written classic. My ONLY complaint with this audio book is that it IS NOT verbatim. A few words have been altered from the written text. I do not understand WHY ANYONE would tamper with a classic. Don't change EVEN A WORD.
I enjoy the narration. The story is a MUST HAVE for every Christian home. I did not & will not ask for a refund as the changes in the audio book are minor but I WOULD hope that in the future, a CLASSIC BOOK that is produced as an audio book and presented as UNABRIDGED would also carry some mark to denote the written and oral words mirror each other or that they do not.
I'm not sure that you could compare this work with any other work. Perhaps Milton's great classic "Paradise Lost" would be the closest and first obvious work that comes to mind.
Mr. David Shaw-Parker, in my humble opinion, is AN EXCELLENT choice to have performed the narration of this classic tale. I would have given him MORE than 5 stars if that were an option.
Absolutely not. Don't tamper with a good thing.
Keep the classics PURE...don't change EVEN A WORD in the written or oral performance of a classic.
I am a mother of 3. I have 4 grandchildren. I love being outside. I love to cook and I am a Christian.
The content was awesome.
When I realized the man was walking through life with all the players of becoming a Christian and that was his name.
It gave me a full heart
I am glad I came upon this book.
This book is definitely Spirit lead, characterizing all of the forces we face each and every day as persons and with their own dialogue. You have to appreciate the Old English, and in a short while you adjust to it and come to admire the way it flows. The performance is one of the best I've heard (David Shaw-Parker). Both book and performance are at that top level quality that is just not possible of every book. Thank you Jesus for it.
