Pilgrim's Progress, The Movie

My friend Arne Gasch recently alerted me to a recently released movie of John Bunyan's classic work, Pilgrim's Progress.

As a reviewer noted, "Pilgrim's Progress: Journey to Heaven is a faithful and creative adaptation of a timeless classic. The genius lies in bringing Christian and his fellow travelers into a modern context.

I haven't seen the movie, but the trailers I have seen are gripping, and yet seem to accurately portray the message of the book.

Check them out for yourself:

(watch the trailer on the main page)

(slight differences from the main trailer)

(much different from the first two trailers)

It's impossible to film the whole book in 1 hour and 43 minutes, so hopefully the film will motivate people to read the book.  If you don't own a copy (shame, shame!) you can read it online here.
