This book is one of the foundations of Christian literature in the English speaking world. It is an allegory about the journey of a believer from the world into heavy. It is also considered by some to be the first novel written in the English language. This Victorian edition by Mary Godolphin attempts to make it an easier read for children by using words of only one syllable. It is an interesting experiment, and if you are a person of faith, this is the book for you.
