By John Bunyan, Edited by C. J. Lovik, Illustrated by Mike Wimmer

Regarded as one of the most significant works of English literature, John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress has encouraged, challenged, and fascinated Christians and non-Christians, young and old, for more than three centuries. Retaining the dignity and beauty of Bunyan’s original language, editor C. J. Lovik has updated key words and phrases, making the book more accessible to modern readers. Brought to life with 30 original, full-page, color illustrations by award-winning illustrator Mike Wimmer, this edition will help readers understand the joys and struggles of the life of faith on earth through the journey of Christian as he encounters Evangelist, Ignorance, Mr. Worldly Wisdom, and others on his way to the Celestial City.

240 pages

“This classic has refreshed my spirit time and again when my soul has longed for Christ-centered guidance through a maze of modern detours and diversions. I’m so grateful this special edition of The Pilgrim’s Progress is now available not only to a new generation of Christians but also to believers like myself who need direction and refreshment along our journey toward Home.”

Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder, Joni and Friends

“If any smoothing of Bunyan’s seventeenth-century language plus new colored pictures can set The Pilgrim’s Progress aglow in the hearts of today’s young readers, this lovely book will surely do it.”

J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College


“For two centuries following its publication (Part 1 in 1678, Part 2 in 1684), The Pilgrim’s Progress gained the status of best-read book (apart from the Bible). This magnificent production by Crossway with stunning illustrations by Mike Wimmer should help reinstate Bunyan’s classic allegory to the status it belongs. It should be a question we ask ourselves: Have I read The Pilgrim’s Progress? If not, repent immediately, for in taking up this volume you will find pastoral insights from a pastor of souls to help you discover the biblical way of salvation and aid you in the journey home.”

Derek W. H. Thomas, Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary; Teaching Fellow, Ligonier Ministries; Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

“This is one of the best books I’ve ever read.”

Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC; President, 9Marks

The Pilgrim’s Progress has long been a favorite of many. Now there is even more to love with this beautiful, updated edition. Editor’s notes clarify the ideas in John Bunyan’s classic allegory, while footnotes show where in Scripture Bunyan found them. The detailed color illustrations will delight both new readers and long-time lovers of this beloved tale.”

Starr Meade, author, Training Hearts, Teaching Minds; The Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Study; and Give Them Truth

“Like countless others, I have been greatly influenced by The Pilgrim’s Progress. Charles Spurgeon called it ‘next to the Bible, the book that I value most.’ It has already inspired generations, and I am confident that this new edition will inspire the rising generation. It is refreshingly readable while remaining true to this timeless classic. The illustrations, Scripture references, and study notes make it a superb resource for family devotions and study groups.”

Susan Hunt, Former Director of Women's Ministries, PCA; coauthor, Women's Ministry in the Local Church

“The longer I journey through our dear Immanuel’s land, the more grateful I am for John Bunyan’s ‘dream’ and the cruel imprisonment that occasioned it. What a gift weary travelers have been given in this precious, timeless classic-and what beauty, insight, and encouragement was borne out of his suffering! Unafraid to challenge the outward trials of moralism, materialism, and persecution, humble enough to confess his own doubts and despair, Bunyan leads us on our way to the Celestial City we long to see. And what a gift modern readers have been blessed with in C. J. Lovik’s careful editing and Mike Wimmer’s luminous illustrations! This book is beautiful! The Pilgrim’s Progress has always been a cherished treasure, but this edition makes Christian’s story—our story—sing! I’m so thankful for it!”
