This is a wonderful book, one that every Christian should read. The Pilgrim's Progress is an allegory, one that shines its light on our hearts as well as on the world around us. Bunyan's choice of names for the various characters should be carefully considered. Many a person espouses religion, but not of that of the saints that have gone before us.
