I did it...I finished Pilgrim's Progress. Many many months in the reading. I didn't dislike it, there was just so much to it! I was expecting more of a story (I loved Hinds Feet On High Places), but this was just different. You could almost take time with every section and think on it and work things out with it. Very challenging. I would like to read it again in ten years and see what new thing sticks out. Right now it makes me think of 1 Corinthians 3:10-15
"By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work. If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames."
May my life be more than just "escaping through the flames".
