I felt Bunyan regurgitated most of the material from the first book and the story lacked originality Also, the women and boys trembled in weakness and fear, unlike Christian in the first This came across a bit misogynistic to me Much of the book covered the first story, like a review or a fieldtrip over historical ground Teaching dominated story also.
Completed again, on my regular rereading .
Not as good as part one in my opinion but still very good It seems to me that part one was raw and written because he had a story to tell, not really knowing if anyone would ever read or like it This one seems forced, riding on the tails of the first That said, there is much deeper theology embedded in the allegory of part two and it gives great insight to the beliefs of this Puritan pastor For example, the character Great heart is a picture of a pastor throughout the book that guides them alo [...]
I give the second part a nine out of ten It might be the best book i ve ever read I liked the overall story, it was very spirtual and had action in it than the first This is one of the few books where I consciously lerned a lot of lessons I also liked some of the characters in the book especially Mr Great heart Cristiana s guide I liked the biblical concepts of the book and how it conveysa the Christian life as a journey The pronblem I had with reading the book was the languge I had trouble und [...]
I read this a very long time ago, but my recollection is that it took all the things that were weird about Pilgrim s Progress and turned them up to eleven I definitely think all the children were married off to creepy sounding allegories at the end I do wish we still lived in an era where people had allegorical names so you could tell whether to hang out with them, slay them, or what Giant Good Slay, for instance, or Feeble Mind or Ready to Halt, all of which are actual names that appear in this [...]
Great followup from the Pilgrim s Progress It was good to find out how Christian s family fair after his departure John Bunyan did a fantastic job as I again was a to glean much from what was written I detect a re read next year also.
The spiritual application and conversations are perhaps pronounced in this volume, but it doesn t have the same potency that the first did Still, I think that unfortunately this part is passed over far too often and has many things of benefit in it.Read many years ago, recently re read.
Page after page of encouragement My favorite thing in this second part is how much emphasis there is on God s faithfulness as seen in Christina s journey along with her sons and her daughters in law all the way into Eternity.
This book belongs in the museum gathering dust, only to be seen not to be read What female could not be insulted when the book suggests that women need a guide to ascend to heaven because they don t have the heart for it It s also blatantly racist I don t care when it was written, it s rubbish.
Good book I love the story This is the story about his wife But this book is written in old English like the original Pilgrims Progress Thought this was an updated version Not as enjoyable for a child to read Prefer Dangerous Journey version of Pilgrims Progress hands down.
I m just not the target audience I d imagine that if you re a christian fundamentalist this story is right up there with the adventures of hercules in terms of accessible mythos Also, you have to bear in mind the times when the book was published Things were different.
I adore this second part of the Pilgrim s Progress It may be even better than the first, but I don t know that it would be as powerful as a stand alone I love the special attention paid to those who are less stoic and or vulnerable Truly an excellent, spiritually uplifting tale
What did I think It was an excellent book, written in such a way that kids 6 and up can relate to, enjoy, understand, and comprehend It deals with life issues, religion and faith in an easy to understand way I really loved this book A lot
Christiana is the continuing story book of Christian Wife and kids.The first book being The Pilgrim s Progress
I liked Christian s story but Christiana s was just the same story told again A whole story of introducing Christian s family to everyone who had heard about him.
It s interesting that this scones up in the second part In some ways Christiana is a far relatable character than her husband One critic points out that Christiana deals with a lot real life concerns such as baby sitters, tending to sick children and later being concerned about their choices of spouses On that note, the young lady Mercy whom she takes along as a servant, becomes the wife of her oldest son And this demonstrates her attitude towards social differences Although poorer and hired a [...]
I thoroughly enjoyed Pilgrim s Progress, Part 1, but I found Part 2 even enjoyable That s partly due to the fact that it was new to me, but I also thought the allegory was somewhat developed in Part 2 I especially enjoyed the ending, when each of the Pilgrims is individually called to cross the River of death and join the King in the Celestial City I will read this part repeatedly, as it was awe inspiring to me This Part 2 deserves a much wider reading than it presently enjoys I wish someone [...]
Although a very book book, not as good as part 1 It lacked a certain impetus as in the first and only really seems to be a repeat and summary of the first book, but, even still a must read.
This was part of the Pilgrim s Progress audio book that I listened to in July I m glad I was able to have both parts, the whole story.
This is like an extension from Part 1 but made to suite different type of christians such as women, children, weak, church Still as insightful as part 1
