"The Pilgrim’s Progress is a classic of classics. If we exclude sacred texts (the Bible, the Koran, etc.), liturgical texts (Book of Common Prayer), and political books that Chairman Mao might take a dim view of your family not owning, The Pilgrim’s Progress is arguably the best-selling book of all time. It has never been out of print, and has been translated into over 200 languages. If you have not read it, you cannot be said to be educated in Western letters, and if you did not read it appreciatively, we might still have our doubts." ~ from Douglas Wilson's guide
The Worldview Guides from the Canon Classics Literature Series provide an aesthetic and thematic Christian perspective on the most definitive and daunting works of Western Literature. Each Worldview Guide presents the big picture (both the good and the bad) without neglecting the details. Each Worldview Guide is a friendly literary coach -- and a treasure map, and a compass, and a key -- to help teachers, parents, and students appreciate, critique, and begin to master the classics.
The bite-size WGs are divided into these ten sections (with some variation due to genre): Introduction, The World Around, About the Author, What Other Notables Said, Setting, Characters, & Argument, Worldview Analysis, Quotables, 21 Significant Questions & Answers, and Further Discussion & Review. A free classics test and answer key are also available online.
