Next to the Bible, Pilgrim’s Progress is the most read book of all time. With a distinction like this and it’s allegorical focus on a Christian’s journey through this world toward heaven, it is definitely a book that should be read by our children.
While Pilgrim’s Progress could simply be read (or listened to), there is much to be gained from thinking deeply about it and discussing it with a parent (or mature adult). This is because the meaning within the story becomes richer as you grow older. Maturity in one’s faith, and experience with life’s trials, makes Pilgrim’s Progress even more meaningful.
The full, unabridged text of Pilgrim’s Progress is included in the oversized hardback curriculum (and is illustrated with well-drawn black and white drawings). The curriculum also includes provided questions, charts, and Scripture references that complement each chapter. The curriculum comes with an online resource that allows printing of the questions for additional students.
