The Way of a Christian: Life Lessons from Pilgrim’s Progress-a 90-Day Devotional is an intriguing devotional.
Using John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress, which was published in 1678 after he spent twelve years in prison for refusing to give up his spiritual mission, each devotion pulls a quote from Part I of Bunyan’s book, discusses how it relates to a Christian’s life today, explains what’s going on at this point in The Pilgrim’s Progress, reinforces the devotion with scripture references, offers several questions for reflection, and ends with a prayer.
The introduction to this devotional book states its purpose is to show the transcendent and eternal truths contained in Bunyan’s story. I believe it achieves exactly that.
The reader is encouraged to read The Pilgrim’s Progress along with the devotional. Although it is not necessary to read the book along with the devotional, it is interesting to do so. When I received my copy, I pulled my 1933 edition of Bunyan’s book from the shelf and started reading.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?
