The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan

It’s considered among the most critical works of religious British literature, continues to be converted into greater than 200 languages, and has not been from print.
Christian, an everyman character, may be the protagonist from the allegory, which centers itself in the journey from his hometown, the “City of Destruction” (“this world”), towards the “Celestial City” (“that which would be to come”: Paradise) atop Mt. Zion. Christian is considered lower with a great burden, the understanding of his crime, that they believed originated from his studying “the book in the hands,” (the Bible). This burden, which may get him to sink into Tophet (hell), is really intolerable that Christian must seek deliverance. He meets Evangelist because he is walking in the fields, who directs him towards the “Wicket Gate” for deliverance. Since Christian cannot begin to see the “Wicket Gate” within the distance, Evangelist directs him to visit a “shining light,” which Christian thinks he sees. He begins his journey, dealing with danger and despair, as well as in the finish reaches the Celestial City.
“Now it should be noted the city was upon a mighty hill, however the pilgrims increased that hill with ease, since the two ministering spirits brought them up through the arms, and since they’d left their mortal clothes in it within the river. So that they ran in the hill with agility and speed, though the top from the mountain was greater compared to clouds. Because they increased, they spoken and sang and chuckled, because they’d managed to get securely over the river and since they’d such glorious new companions.”
