Often disguised as something that would help him, evil accompanies Christian on his journey to the Celestial City. As you walk with him, you'll begin to identify today's many religious pitfalls. These are presented by men such as Pliable, who turns back at the Slough of Despond; and Ignorance, who believes he's a true follower of Christ when he's really only trusting in himself. Each character represented in this allegory is intentionally and profoundly accurate in its depiction of what we see all around us, and unfortunately, what we too often see in ourselves. But while Christian is injured and nearly killed, he eventually prevails to the end. So can you.

This is a modern English version of The Pilgrim`s Progress which I have been waiting to become available in audio. Unfortunately, in this audio edition the text of Scripture references are also read along the reading the text of the book. This is quite distracting and interrupts the narration of the story, especially so in the case when the Scripture being read is a bit long. Other than that this modern version is what I want to listen to as it is very clear and easy to understand.
Trying to follow the story line is useless! We have read other versions of Pilgrims Progress several times and never had to endure having every scripture reference quoted in full inserted as an interruption into the narrative. Sometimes more than once per sentence! The whole story is impossible to enjoy. I am removing it from my library, sorry I bought it.
"Probably a better read then listen"
I found the frequent scripture reference although good for source distributed the flow of the story and the second half of the book was in many ways was repetitive of the first half.
loved this book. I heartily recommend. very edifying to hear, certainly a breath of fresh air.
