The Pilgrim’s Progress (by John Bunyan)
iOS Universal Books
THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS by John Bunyan (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
"This is the great merit of the book, that the most cultivated man cannot find anything to praise more highly, and the child knows nothing more amusing." (Samuel Johnson)
This classic allegory tells of a Christian's epic journey toward heaven and the many temptations and distractions he encounters along the way. With a burden on his back, Christian flees the City of Destruction and journeys through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and more, until he finally reaches the Celestial City.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, Robert Whitfield. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
"Next to the Bible, the book I value most is John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress" (Charles Spurgeon)
