The pilgrim's progress by Ralph Vaughan Williams( Sound Recording )
16 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 326 libraries worldwide
Next to "The Bible", "The pilgrim's progress" has probably been more widely read than any other book in the English language-and rightfully so. It is considered by most critics as the greatest allegory in any language. And to think that it was written by a jailed tinker who received very little formal education. This is the enthralling account of a Christian's epic journey. With a burden on his back, Christian reads a book that tells him that the city in which he and his family dwell will be set ablaze. Christian flees from the City of Destruction and journeys through the Slough of Despond, the Interpreter's House, the House Beautiful, the Valley of Humiliation, the Valley of the Shadow of Death, Vanity Fair, Doubting Castle, and the Delectable Mountains. He finally reaches the Celestial City
