**Please be aware that the amplified books were written a few years after the audio dramatizations were produced and do not correspond word for word with the recordings. In fact, a brief comparison of any scene with the original book by John Bunyan will reveal that the book version is even more highly enhanced than the recorded versions – Thus “The New Amplified” portion of the title.

At the House Beautiful

From time to time on our pilgrim journey we are brought face-to-face with life’s most painful questions. Do you have a loved one who has lost their way? Does their pain bring pain to your heart? Then you can relate to Christian’s feelings in this brief snippet from The Pilgrim’s Progress Audio Drama.

The Slough of Despond

In the moments prior to this scene Pliable has been persuaded to join Christian on his journey to The Celestial City. His eyes sparkle with greed as his newfound friend tells him of the glorious kingdom soon to come. He presses on in eager anticipation until – that is – he finds himself struggling for life in the infamous Slough of Despond.

Fleeing from the city of Destruction

“He that loveth Father or Mother or family more than me is not worthy of me.” Sometimes personal conviction necessitates painful decisions. This SnapShot from The Pilgrim’s Progress Audio Drama series illustrates this concept.
