Little Pilgrim’s Progress by Helen L. Taylor was delight to read because the language was easy for us to understand. Just like the centuries old Pilgrims Progress classic, this easier version details the journey of Christian as he leaves the City of Destruction and heads to the Celestial city. This book is very spiritual and heavenly minded and Christian is challenged to see if he will be faithful. He faces many trials which are often difficult and scary. My boys and I had many discussions during this story as we read about all of the trials that Christian and his friends went through. In the end, the point that came through for us was that God will be faithful to bring us through any trials we face on our journey to the celestial city.
Although this book is an allegory full of adventures, battles, and giants, that my boys loved; the message is serious, hopeful, yet quite sobering. This book is not twaddle for sure and will be a keeper for our library. We read it a few years ago….perhaps we will read it again before we tackle John Bunyan’s version. ~Anne
