Highly disappointed with the intentional removal of important parts of an excellent, compelling, thought-provoking book. Get the original (also available on Christianaudio) and leave this one on the shelf.

Wouldn't recommend for sad removal of salvation
I wouldn't recommend as the book has been edited to such an extent an unbeliever could believe they are able to be saved by being a "good works". John Bunyan wrote the original that people may know true salvation through Christ as compared to false religion. These Bible truths are mostly removed, to make it more like the world and palatable as the editor says. I would recommend listening to another reading of Bunyan's work book. Good reading skills though.

Good narration skills, book summarised to the extent of losing the Godly depth Bunyan had
The narration skill is excellent, and the book of the book helps get an understanding of the story. However, due to the severe summary with many portions cut out, the rich theology which warms the heart to God and teaches us the deep truths of the Bible are mostly lost in the book. Missing distinctly are Bunyan's warnings of differentiating true and false salvation, the struggle of the Christian and his failures and sins. Certain whole events are missing also. Good for an overview listen but after that I would recommend listening to the actual narration and you will find 4 times the gems and depth which will warm the heart to God.
