Introductory note:

This version of The Pilgrim's Progress presents John Bunyan's classic narrative shorn of the doctrinal theology belonging to the seventeenth century.  The story should be a part of the thought and life of all who use the English language.

The first edition ot The Pilgrim's Progress appeared in 1678. Before Bunyan's death, in 1688, eight other editions revised by him appeared.  He produced also the Second Part of his Allegory, "Wherein is set forth the manner of the setting out of Christian's Wife and Children, their Dangerous Journey, and their Safe Arrival at the Desired Country."  From 1688 to the present time many adaptations of the text have been printed, and the book has been translated into many languages.

The editor of this abridgment of the narrative has been at special pains to preserve the quaintness and vigor of the original text.
