Pilgrim's Progress Journey to Heaven ~ Review

Hi Everyone! Yup, another review! This was one of the many items in that Vision Forum box I was telling you about in my last post. This is probably one of the best movies that I have ever seen! Here is how their website describes this great film. (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.) One of the reasons I love this film so much is because the film makers have taken a original book and set it into a more modern theme. Christian is a normal guy, he has a normal job, lives in a suburb house, he's a regular guy, until he finds a book. One of my favorite parts in this movie is when Christian comes to The Place Of Deliverance (i.e. the cross) and his sins roll down the hill and he receives new clothes, shoes and a key he would be needing later. I was very refreshed by this movie because it is one of the few that I have seen where the writers are not afraid to address subjects like hell and the coming destruction. It is a very good reminder that we can't live on this earth forever, and WILL be in either two places, Heaven or Hell. I highly recommend this film to everyone, but maybe not to families with smaller children in the house, there are some frightening images of hell and the devil that might scare children. I am glad that the Christian film industry is getting larger, and I hope that a lot more films like this one come out!

P.S. About my tennis tournament that I had today. I got past the first two rounds and am in the semi finals, please pray that I won't faint in the heat, as I already have severe sunburn. Yup, we Texans really never get a break from the hot weather, it being 85 degrees and all.

Good morning Abigail,
I really enjoyed your review on the Pilgrim's Progress movie. I agree - one of the very best renditions of that movie I have ever seen. Praise God for film makers like that! May the Lord inspire and provide for them to make many more inspirational films - to draw us all closer to a pure and whole hearted walk with Jesus Christ, our Lord and Creator. In Him we live and move and have our being!

Thank you for such a wide variety of edifying material on this blog. May the Lord guide your blogging efforts, and all of your friends - that are strengthening their souls, so they can choose the way of life - one day - one hour and one minute at a time. You are a great blessing to me, my daughter.
Love, Dad

I, too, am glad to see that there are more and more decent movies being shown and even more, Movies that lift up the Lord for others to see.

I am our church's librarian and I think someone recently donated this movie to us in a box of a lot of other books and movies. I know it was about Pilgrim's Progress just not sure if it was this version. I will have to go through that box soon and check it out. Linda
